The brand is born from the hand of Simón Ferro family who purchased these wine cellars in 1975, where wines of the County were elaborated since 1862. At the time, the property had roughly a hectare of traditionally grown vineyard and, what began as a complementary activity to the familiar economy became over the years in a company itself, true to the vision of the family who from the beginning was enthusiastic in obtaining a premium quality white wine.
Winemaking tradition goes back to 1912, David Moreno built the current Bodegas in 1988 it has underground cellars of stone and clay walls giving their wines the best condition of temperature and humidity necessary for proper conservation and subsequent aging in the bottle !
The wines from here are the heritage of Don José Santamaría, who from a young age was deeply involved in the winemaking process and grew up surrounded by vineyards. These same wines are now ranked amongst the best in the region.

After spending many years working for other wineries in the area around Galicia, Manuel Guerra Justo decided to break away and set up his own bodegas, “Via Arxentea”, literally translated as “ The Silver Route”, the local name for the important pilgrimage route of El Camino de Santiago to Santiago de Compostela. Manuel Guerra is a “Colleitero” and therefore responsible for the entire production cycle, from the care in the vineyard to the winemaking. He is the first to acknowledge that the secret to achieving purity and varietal expression in his wines is in his vineyard management which he attends to personally and pampers vine by vine as if they were his own children, with the sole objective of achieving maximum quality.
