Eladio Piñeiro

Eladio Piñeiro founded Bodegas Mar de Frades in 1983 after spending many years making Albariño wine, before the Appellation Rías Baixas was granted. In January 2003, due to events that have influenced the life of his family, he decided to sell his winery keeping the vineyards he owned. Later, Eladio decided to take a step forward and do what really excites and motivates him. He started to make wines again and moved away from the usual circuit creating a new category: wines with soul! By showcasing their roots and history, he produced reds from Portuguese Alentejo and whites from Albariño Rías Baixas, while having absolute freedom to create and develop small amounts of real wine, for wine lovers seeking wines with meaning and showing their terroir and history.
