Eladio Piñeiro founded in 1983 Bodegas Mar de Frades after several years making wine Albariño, before it was granted the Denomination of origin Rías Baixas. Never wanted a wine cellar of big dimensions, but always obsessed by a wine staff, and thus was born a special production from grape must tear which was presented in partnership with the harvest of the 91 and a dress only (GLASS bottle BLUE custom), that was a revolution in terms of external image of a high quality wine.
Later added on its label, a hidden message to the consumer, which was to appear a galleon when the wine was to the optimal temperature for consumption. Also got to position a liqueur pomace exclusive and the rest of the range in a bottle in the form of still traditional.
This gives an idea of the exclusivity of the consumers to whom it is directed, for they tried to make elaborations very special based on the roots of this land of the Salnés, removing that is exceptional in the variety Albariño both in the wine as in the distillation of their skins.
In January of the year 2003, because of a serious health condition of your partner, decides to address any of the offers that each year received, given that your brand in all the market studies came out as more capacity growth among other features, because it was reluctant to produce more with the risk of not maintaining the level of quality and rigor that had been imposed. Given the family situation and to have guarantees of face, he decides to sell exclusively their brand “Mar de Frades”, the patent of the blue bottle and the Still, by signing a covenant of non-competition during 3 years and renting the warehouse during that period, but of course, the return was announced.
