Pazo de Rubianes
Declared International Garden of Excellence in 2014, and part of the Historical Gardens of the Camellia Route and Rías Baixas Wine Route, Pazo de Rubianes is nestled in the estuary of Arousa (Pontevedra) and is one of the three Señoríos (manors) officially recognised in Spain. This is where a large palatial building, in perfectly-preserved condition, competes with a garden project focused on the preservation of a singular biodiversity, a unique belt of trees and a 25 hectare vineyard of Albariño grapes. Casa de Rubianes dates back to the middle ages when, in 1411, the Caamaño family, owners of Casa de Noia, settled in the 12th century stronghold they posessed in Rubianes and built their first residence there. 30 years later, in 1441, Don García Caamaño founded the Villa de García Caamaño, known today as Vilagarcía de Arousa. It was Phillip II, at the beginning of the 16th century, who granted the title of Lordship of Rubianes to the Caamaño family, for their services to the crown and the then Marquis de Vilagarcía. The villa took the family's crest as its own, adorned with a pine tree and 10 spears. The property continues to reside in the hands of the same family, who has been committed to it generation after generation. After various decades of absence in wine production, a vineyard was planted in the '90s, giving way to a resurgence inPazo de Rubianes' wines. Pazo de Rubianes and García de Caamaño are a part of the tradition of some of the best wines, made of grapes that are grown among camellias and surrounded by a historical Galician garden that gives it distinctive character. Bathed by the Atlantic climate typical of the Rías Baixas D.O, each year the agricultural engineer of Pazo de Rubianes and his team do a meticulous job of selecting the lots whose grapes will be used in the estate's wine production.
