The Algueira winery is located in the heart of an old chestnut and oak tree forest,on the banks of the river Sil, where the monks built their monasteries back in the 12th Century. This reflects the calm and peace important for the creation of their wines. The winery is at one with nature, and it resembles a monastic Romanesque building.The winery relies on leading technologies for the elaboration and bottling of wine.
Adega Algueira uses autonomous varieties, and production is based entirely on grapes from their own vineyards which benefit from exceptional micro-climate conditions for the production of first grade quality grapes. The aim is for quality over quantity, thereby creating a genuine wine which is sure to please the palates of wine lovers.
Red Mencía, Alvarello, Merenzao, and Caíño grapes, and whites from Godello, Loureiro, Alvariño and Treixadura are the musical chords used to compose their masterpieces.
Restaurant O Castelo is also located inside the winery. Among its specialities are Galician veal, lamb or ox stand out, as well as cod and cold meat and cheese boards.
The restaurant is open 7 days per week and it has an 'a la carte' menu available. There are also group menus available upon request. You can reserve by telephone, 34 982 152 238
