Adegas Pazo das Tapias was founded in 2006 when the Mendez family adquired the winery and the vineyard Las Tapias. Pazo das Tapias is located in the middle of its own vineyard, probably the best vineyards of the Monterrei D.O. in seniority and formation of the strain.

The Winery

With a capacity of 500,000 l. and equipped with all the technological advances in the production of white and young red wines.

We produce wines with the grape varieties Godello white and Mencia red, the winerie have its own vineyard of 10 ha and with more of 60 external vintners which grape production is directly controlled by us with long-term contracts.



The Vineyard

Planted in the early 80s with innovative two different grape varieties (Godello for white and Mencia for red) and techniques. In the vineyard we can see clearly two different types of soil: a sandy hillside planted with the variety Godello where the bright reflections from ground quartz maximize the concentration of white Godello; and the sedimentary area planted with Mencia where there is a perfect phenolic maturity which indicates the great potential to develop breeds.



Denominación de Origen Monterrei

Monterrei D.O. is the youngest Galician Designation of Origin, is located in South-Eastern part of the province of Ourense with an average altitude of 600m above sea level on slate soils and with a continental climate wich is on a rift valley transition between Northwest and the Spanish peninsular plateau.

Within this D.O. is found the oldest winepress of Galicia, which demonstrates the growing vines in this valley since immemorial times. Because of all this, in the last 20 years the recovery of native varieties Godello and Mencia. Parallel to this varietal conversion, processes such as concentrations of plots and plantations explain why modern Monterrei is the appellation of Galicia began with a future more promising.
