Wineries and vineyardsy
Fillaboa Winery is located in the Rías Baixas D.O. and represents the magic of Galicia, the charm of its landscapes, and the seduction of the unique Albariño vineyards. A stone wall, a stately pazo and a stone chapel are vestiges of its fabulous history. Fillaboa Winery was founded at the end of the 18th century and has belonged to the Masaveu family since 2000. It is one of the oldest and largest estates in Galicia, and the only winery in Rías Baixas that belongs to the prestigious association ‘Grandes Pagos de España’. The Fillaboa estate has a total of 74 hectares of land of which 54 are planted with the Albariño variety.
Leda Winery, located in Tudela de Duero, Valladolid, was first promoted in 1998 by the prestigious enologist Mariano García, who is linked to some of the most important wine projects in Spain. The Masaveu family joined this project in 2009 and subsequently produced wines with an organic farming philosophy that held the utmost respect for the vineyard. Leda has created an attractive "multiterroir" winery concept that connects the essence of the Tempranillo grape with the expression of some 20 hectares of selected vineyards in different areas of Castile and Leon, resulting in wines with incredible power and personality.
Murua Winery is located in the heart of Rioja Alavesa, in Elciego, a historic town established in the sixteenth century giving the area a unique winemaking tradition. This winery belongs to the DOCa. Rioja was the first to form part of this winemaking group and has a valuable and exclusive winegrowing, winemaking, artistic and cultural heritage. The more than 80 hectares of vineyards planted different varieties are located in the vicinity of the winery and in nearby towns. The wine tourism possibilities offered by the five top range wines it produces are limitless and it has been awarded the ‘Best of’ Wine Tourism Prize in the Art and Culture categories.
With the acquisition of Pagos de Araiz estate by the Masaveu family, a fresh and daring project was born in Navarra, which was completed with the foundation of the winery in 2003. An avant-garde château-style building on the outskirts of the medieval town of Olite stands out against a backdrop of 240 hectares of its own vineyards surrounding the facilities. Its innovative management style and wide-ranging wine tourism offering connects Pagos de Araiz to the historical, natural and wine producing gravitas of the environment, through art and gastronomy.
The Valverán cider press house, located in Sariego, the heart of the Cider Region of Asturias, is the result of more than ten years of research and trial. It was there that José Masaveu Herrero, General Manager of Masaveu Family Wineries, began his most personal project in 1998. Today, more than 20,000 apple trees are nurtured – on 35 hectares planted with different varieties – using organic cultivation techniques. The orchard is integrated into an 84-hectare estate that expresses all the green charm of the Asturian landscape to produce a unique and original product: the exclusive Valverán 20 Manzanas ice cider.
All of Masaveu Family Wineries' wines start in the vineyard. The terroir is the basis for the balance of what will later be a masterpiece. The importance of the care of the land to extract the best raw material is essential for this wine group. Masaveu Family Wineries meticulously cares for and maintains its more than 400 hectare property of vineyards and orchards. A puzzle of colours, aromas, landscapes and flavours extracted from the very land itself.
