In the 1970s, most vintners in Rías Baixas were pulling up their old red grape vines to make way for the more productive, more en vogue, Albariño. Thankfully, the Méndez family were doing the exact opposite, planting more of the traditional vines, such as Caiño, Espadiero and Louriero Tinto, in a successful attempt to preserve and revive this central element of Galician heritage.
