One of the only wineries in the D.O. Rias Baixas that produces wine solely from estate-owned fruit, Bodegas Fillaboa is unique in their commitment to a single bottling per vintage for the U.S. market. This helps to prevent bottle variation and ensures consistent quality from vintage to vintage. All wines produced by Fillaboa are made from the Albarino grape variety, a thick-skinned grape known for its rich variety of aromas (16 different aromas have been scientifically recognized). Some
consider it to be most closely related to Riesling and believe the name “Albarino,” stems from the phrase “white Rhine” in the local dialect of Gallego.
