Probably, the most unique wines that can be found in Galicia.
The bodega Pazos del Rey is the seed of the D.O. Monterrei. It was built in 1965 and it was established as a cooperative, to which most of the winegrowers in the region went and contributed with 4,000,000 litres in the 80s. The colossal structure established around Pazos del Rey during that period employed 600 people, becoming an economic powerhouse for the region.
Following a decline for several years, Pazos del Rey adopted the concept of a much smaller bodega that was more in line with the market and where quality was given priority above large productions. As a result, a small modern winery was built in the 90s with technologies that focused on making quality wines.
In 2007, Avanteselecta decided to incorporate the bodega to the group, convinced of the great potential of the region, with the purpose of making small productions of, probably, the most unique wines that can be found in Galicia.
