Eladio Pineiro is an artisan, crafting intense and yet ethereal wines from a single grape, the jewel in the crown of Rias Baixas: Albariño. The area is known for long lees aging — a process by which a wine gains texture and body, and often a good deal of salinity — but Eladio takes it up several notches. He’s a born experimenter, but instead of a laboratory, he performs his wizardry in the vines and in the cellar.

His holdings are located in the Salnes Valley, and he’s been growing Albariño since before the Rias Baixas appellation was officially declared. He goes parcel by parcel, vinifying each plot separately and blending at the end; he makes selections each vintage about which batch will age how long, whether they will end up in his Tête de Cuvée bottling or blended into his more simple wines.
