The Albariño “Rego do Sol” Lagar de Costa is from summer-grown grapes from right next to the sea in Viña becerreira. Cold maceration for 2 days. Rego do Sol spends 15-20 days in contact with the skins, during which time it goes through spontaneous ferment using wild yeasts. No stiring of the lees occurs pre – during or post fermentation. 3 months ageing on the lees in stainless steel before bottling for 3 months and then its ready for release. The wine is made using minimul intervention, it is unfiltered, unfined and sulphite free.
Lagar de Costa is small family run winery located on the Atlantic shore, opposite the island of La Toja in the heart of the Salnes. Lagar de Costa has a long tradition of growing Albariño which goes back to the beginning of the 20th century, but it has only been bottling its fruit since 2001. Some of the vineyards are more than 50 years old and yields are kept well below the DO average. The soil is predominantly sandy and the ocean influence keeps the temperature at a yearly average of 14 degrees. The production of their Albarino undergoes rigorous control in both the vineyards and cellars. Only the best selection of grapes go to make up the final wine. In the winery, traditional process and values are partnered with modern techniques to ensure the highest quality product. This is a true expression of this exciting grape varietal, which offers depth, exuberant floral character and minerality.
