About
Chan de Rosas

Chan de Rosas is a winery that combines traditional methods of Albariño winemaking with small, independent growers working different vineyard sites across the Salnés region and Condado de Tea subzone in Rías Biaxas.

Introducing Chan de Rosas

Marcos Lojo, the winemaker behind Chan de Rosas, began working with Albariño in 1995 and is considered one most knowledgeable winemaker of the variety today. The vineyards that grow the Chan de Rosa wines have been, in some cases, planted more than 70 years ago in the areas of A Carabuxeira (Sanxenxo), Padrenda (Meaño), Cabeza de Boi (Méis), A Pedreira (Sisán), Castrelo (Cambados) and Lores (Meaño). The weaving together of the multiple sites with variations in exposure, soil type, and level of Atlantic influence produces a balanced and honest reflection of the region within Rías Biaxas. Chan de Rosas’ relationship with the mindful farmers provides deep, historical knowledge of the sites possessed by the families that work them. As a result, each site is picked as soon as the fruit achieves the fullest potential, no later or sooner. The final wines are unadulterated due to this targeted selection process of each vineyards’ production to perfect the balance of ripeness with natural acidity.
