Records that have been found testify that the PAZO SEÑORÁNS dates back to the 16th century, and that over time, its century-old walls have been silent witnesses to all kinds of events and intrigues. Now converted into a winery and event center, the mansion is a magnificent example of those ancestral Galician houses built in the countryside with all the charm and stateliness of bygone eras.
Marisol Bueno and Javier Mareque bought this estate in 1979, which already had vineyards planted with the Albariño grape variety. The Pazo Señorans estate covers 14 hectares, of which 8.5 are planted with vines, all of them the Albariño variety, in siliceous, granitic and decomposed soils.
Marisol Bueno is the true pioneer and force of this young appellation. Through her work, the DO was created in 1988, quality thresholds were introduced, and the region began to receive wider worldwide recognition. Today, the property is one of the few remaining family owned estates, and remains quite small in order to maintain a rigorous level of quality.
