Mother’s Day is a day to thank and surprise all the mothers in the world, a day that we hear “I love you Mum” from both very near and very far away.
Bodegas Masaveu encourages us to celebrate the day with Fillaboa 2019. This Albariño wine from Rías Baixas is, also by name (Fillaboa, in Galician; good daughter, in Spanish), a true tribute to “good daughters”.
Legend tells that in its origins, back in the 19th Century on The Fillaboa Estate, a count’s beautiful daughter, humiliated by her sisters due to their envy, became the heir of her father’s best plots of land. Her kindness received the due recognition, admiration, love and tenderness of a fair father, hence the name of the Estate.
Fillaboa 2019 is a nuanced, fruity, aromatic and fresh Albariño wine. It is made with grapes from the historical Fillaboa Estate, with vineyards covering 54 hectares of land, situated on the rolling slopes that border, in the south with the Tea and Miño Rivers, a natural border with Portugal, and has been aged on lees for six months. This wine is a perfect gift to show mothers the recognition that they deserve.
Recommended Retail Price: 12,90 €

Fillaboa is a historical Galician estate, the estate has remained indivisible for centuries and is one of the largest, oldest and most beautiful in Galicia and the only one that forms part of the Grandes Pagos de España Association, due to its special characteristics. Behind the 1,600 metres thick stone wall that protects the property, lie the vineyards, the winery and the spectacular, reconstructed stately manor.
54 hectares of Albariño grape vineyards, planted on rolling slopes, form part of the Fillaboa estate, which covers a total of 74 hectares divided into 12 plots on the natural border with Portugal, alongside the Tea and Miño Rivers. The sandy, stony soils, Atlantic climate and mild temperatures, due to the proximity of the sea, make Fillaboa a privileged place to grow the native Albariño grape.
The Masaveu family first invested in the wine sector in 1974, when they purchased Bodegas Murua, however the family’s first vineyards date back to the middle of the 19th century, precisely in Castellar del Vallés, where the family originally comes from, and where Federico Masaveu Rivell began a journey to be continued one century later by his descendants.
Masaveu Bodegas has since grown to become a leader in the sector due to the quality of their winemaking in different DO´s, their sustainable philosophy and their utmost respect for the land in their estate-owned vineyards, thanks to which they transmit the unique personality of each terroir in each and every bottle. This being the common denominator in all the projects led by Bodegas Masaveu in different DO´s: Murua (DOCa Rioja), Fillaboa (DO Rias Baixas), Pagos de Araiz (DO Navarra), Leda (Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León) y Valverán (Asturias).
