Adega Buezas is a family winery in the countryside in Galicia. It is a project of a Galician family who has been working on the grown of albariño vine and on wine making from Alvariha grape for more than 5 generations.
Adega is a Galician word and it means winery.
Our origins can be tracked back as far as over a century. In the thirties of the 1900’s, Senor Alvaro Crespo Peon, just returned from a long 3 years period serving the Army followed by a tragic and long combat during the Spanish civil war on board a submarine, returned to Galicia to marry his fiancée Maria Teresa Rey Otero, to whom he had previously proposed in a letter during his years of absence. At his return, trying to settle back to life, and looking at the good resources our land had to offer, he looked at a forgotten root of an albarinho vine which had grown next to his parent’s house overlooking the valley of Sanxenxo on the Rias Baixas.
He recovered this forgotten root, gently taking care of it and developing new vines he used to plant in his own “Garden of vines”. Soon, along with his wife Teresa, they managed to start producing the very first litters of our golden treasure.
Soon people in the area started hearing about Senor Alvaro’s divine vines and approached him to purchase some of them. Alvaro used this opportunity to make his “garden” bigger, later on requiring the assistance of his daughter and son-in-law Teresa Crespo Rey and Raul Soutullo Magdalena, who continued Alvaro’s dream till today. The vines from Alvaro’s garden were distributed in the area and spread along the Val do Salnes, contributing to develop the plantations of the area.
We can proudly say that the actual Albarinho in the Val do Salnes has a great influence in our albarino roots as many families who those days believed in this gifted vines, initiated the plantation of their vineyards and nowadays are the continuation of the small vines distributed by Alvaro on the 1900’s and today are providing the markets with a renamed and remarkable wine.
During those days, one of the searchers of Alvaro’s vines was from the neighborhood village of Lores, Meano, the family Fernandez Pineiro, Jose and Divina, who also believed in the albarino dream and started a vine plantation after recognizing the value of Alvaro’s vines.
Who would say that after the years the two families would become ONE, with the union of their daughter and son respectively Maria Jesus and Nicolas, reuniting ancient tradition and familiar personality to its wines. From this union, the great granddaughters of the family, Diana and Paula, carrying with them the values and wine tradition inherited trough their genealogical tree, are committed to pursuit the Golden dream. They both acquired and education in different fields, Diana continuing the second generation of jurist in the family and Paula into the aviation field, have travelled around the world whilst continuing their education in several regions abroad, observing and acquiring the best traditional and technological methods for wine production to implement them in the family winery.
After spending long time in training and research in the best wine regions of the world, they were provided with a wide knowledge from the best wine makers from places like Hunter Valley in Australia, Napa Valley in California, Italy, France, Cyprus, Chile, Argentina, South Africa, different regions in Spain and New Zealand, being this last one recognized as of the most interest due to its geological and climatic similarities which today they are implementing in the family winery.
