Priorarto de Razamonde sits on the banks of the Miño river in the north western Spanish province of Galicia just downstream of Ourense and is small, family run business headed up José Pérez Pousa. They have 24 hectares of vineyards divided into more than 150 small plots, which is typical of this part of the world. They are, on average between 15-30 years old and are planted on soils comprising decomposed granite, with sand and clay. 90% of their production comes from plantings of the white varieties Treixadura, Godello and Loureira which are indigenous to the area. The region of Ribeiro, which sites next to Rias Baixas is, like its neighbour, very much influenced by the Atlantic but is also sheltered by the adjacent mountains. As a result the region benefits from warm days and cool nights during the growing season and this allows the grapes to ripen fully while retaining their signature fresh acidity.
Fairly recently established, their first vintages were produced in 2012 under the direction of winemaker Pable Estévez Melédez. In quite a short space of time they've built themselves an eviable reputation for their both their reds and white which appear under the label either 'Priorato de Razamonde' or 'Alter'.
