"The economic crisis led Xurxo Alba to leave his job as an oenological consultant to devote himself full time to his vineyards and cellar. White in Rías Baixas and Valdeorras or red in Ribeira Sacra, the wines of Xurxo clearly express the character of the terroir. In the prestigious Salnés sub-area, for example, the touch of granite and the sea breeze are revealed in fresh and vibrant wines. Wherever he goes, Xurxo aims to respect the nature of the vineyard as much as possible, so that it can be found in every glass of wine. Despite his young age, he knows very well that chemicals damage the vineyard and every day he undertakes not to use them, which is not an easy challenge in a humid soil like that of Galicia. Albamar wines are ripe and fresh, the result of small productions and over 25 years of family experience. An authentic point of reference for quality Galician wine." -Winey notes
