Today, the winery has an impressive 66 hectares of vineyards in some of the best plots in the Salnés Valley and Ribera del Ulla, which makes it one of the most important winegrowers in the area, as well as sourcing Albariño grapes from more than 200 growers in the area.
The Mar de Frades portfolio is composed of different varieties: the iconic Mar de Frades Albariño 2021, Mar de Frades Godello 2020, Brut Nature, Finca Valiñas 2018 and Finca Monteveiga 2018.
