When founder Benito Vázquez planted the Albariño vines amongst the oak trees on this estate, he chose to call it Bodegas Carballal, as the word is a nod to the Galician word for tree: “carballos”. “Sete Cepas” refers to the 7 brothers involved in the production of this wine. Hand-harvested, carefully grown & tended grapes mean an Albariño that expresses classic varietal purity- white stone fruit, citrus, mineral, nice palate weight and refreshing acidity that will also stand up to heavier cold-weather foods. Great as an aperitif before dinner, but it also transitions fabulously onto the table. Spring is here- quench your thirst with Sete Cepas!
