In our 60-hectares vineyard in the Salnés Valley, in the Rías Baixas area (Galicia), Adegas Terra de Asorei pour all of their expertise, scientific knowledge, and humanity into growing Albariño grape and producing authentic, charismatic, high-quality wines that aspire to become world-renowned. While traditional winemaking is the cornerstone of their company, they have taken on new business protocols to adapt to the origin and quality controls to receive the “Galicia Quality” label.
The concept of “Care,” the brand mark of the Bodegas Añadas wines, refers to the name that the ancient Romans used for the Spanish region of Cariñena. This name was later changed to “Caraellana,” which can be translated into English to mean “the lovely prairie.” The Bodegas Añadas are well aware of the origins of their homeland, and they too share a passion for this unique region, as well as a love for their terroir. The vision and mission of the Care mark is aimed at informing new consumers around the world about this unique region through a serious of illustrated faces created by the artist Enrique Torrijos. The Care wines of the Bodegas Añadas in the Cariñena DO present a range of very high quality wines, all of which are being offered at an opportune price. The artwork on these wine bottles represent the tradition along with the uniqueness and innovation that distinguishes the Bodegas Añadas winery from their competition.
The story begins 1914 when two brothers planted a vineyard in Camporrobles, Valencia, Spain. While having grown rapidly over the past decades, the owners decided to convert to Organic practices in 1985. In 1999, 2 of the brothers merged their families vineyards into one operation and founded a winery the next year. The family has continued to grow over the past decades, innovating new brands (like Pasion de Bobal), investing in new properties, and opening new markets. The area, Utiel-Requena (in Valencia), is known for Bobal - which is the 2nd most planted red grape in Spain. The Butterfly (la mariposa) is a symbol of the organic status of the wine and the respect for their eco-system.
The Bohigas family have been growing grapes on this land since 1290. Their vineyards are in the Anoia river valley, but further upstream at higher altitudes and cooler climates than the Penedes cava producers. Xarel-lo dominates the white cavas. This white variety has red grape like anti-oxidative properties allowing the wines to have extended lees aging without oxidizing and retaining fresh flavors. Secondary fermentation and lees aging in the bottle all take place in ancient underground cellars. All cavas are disgorged to order for Polaner. Dosage levels are at the lower end for their designation's allowed range.
