Alberto Nanclares is an unassuming new star in Cambados. From working as an economist for many years, to a fortuitous second career in grape-growing, to today crafting some of the most serious, ocean-infused, age-worthy single vineyard Albariños. In 1992, Alberto and his wife wanted to unwind their careers near the ocean.

In the beginning, Alberto farmed conventionally but quickly became disenchanted with the use of chemicals. Gradually, he moved away from the systematic herbicide and pesticide use, and has -now- eliminated chemicals altogether, with full-fledged organic farming and some work with biodynamics; organic production is very rare in this humid Atlantic-influenced region prone to viticultural difficulties.

2021 was a cooler vintage in Rías Baixas, that Alberto and Silvia described as strange: maturation was difficult, harvest was early, and there were some mildew struggles with an attack on the vines’ leaves. Alcohol levels are lower than average and acidity levels higher. Overall, despite some difficulties, Alberto and Silvia were happy with the results.
