Don Olegario  Don Olegario 2

The Falcón family has been growing grapes and making wine since 1980, when our father, Olegario Falcón, bought the vineyard La Finca and started to produce Albariño under the of name Don Olegario, which became part of the appellation Rías Baixas in 1988. He inherited the tradition and passion for the business from his father, Adolfo Falcón, a pioneer introducing the wine business in the local area.

We are the third generation to continuing growing grapes because we value the connection to the land. We are passionate about using traditional, hand-crafted wine making in order to help our grapes tell their own story of soil, wine and weather.We believe that vineyard, location, climate and soil composition are key factors in creating wines of extraordinary quality and distinction.

La Finca is nestled in the Salnés Valley, one of the five subzones in the appellation Rías Baixas. This region is one of the coolest areas owing to its proximity to the Atlantic coast. The characteristics result in mild temperatures, heavy rainfall, equally distributed throughout the area and a drier climate during the summer. The soil is generally clay and rocky with pink granite and the best grape variety, the Albariño.

La Finca belongs to the region known as Green Spain. It is the area of land made up of the regions of Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria and the Basque County, in northern Spain. Although they have some things in common, each one of these regions has its own unique character. Rías Baixas and the rest of Galicia receive more rainfall than any other part in the country. The cool and damp Atlantic-influenced climate favours the production of dry white made with mainly indigenous varieties, including the popular Albariño grape.

What makes La Finca unique:

30 year-old vineyard.
About 95 meters above the sea level.
North-South exposure.
Granite and sandy soil.
Proximity to the sea.
