"The Palacio de Fefinanes is an ornate, two-story structure, its walls and turrets built of granite blocks, defining one side of the central square in Cambados, a town in Salnes, Rias Baixas. The Viscount of Fefinanes, Gonzalo Sarmiento Valladares, completed his family's home in 1647 and records trace winemaking at the palace to the 17th century; it turned into a business venture at the beginning of the 20th, with the first bottles released in 1928. Today, there are two small parcels of vines on pergolas within the estate walls; most of the grapes come to the palace winery from growers with small plots in Cambados. Cristina Mantilla, who has made the wines since 1995, has added to the original, singular albarino with vineyard and cellar selections that take the grape from fresh coastal classics to long-lived whites."
