Santiago Ruiz and Rosa Ruiz,
wines created by a family

First came Ángel, the grandfather, then his grandson Santiago and now, his daughter Rosa. This Galician family's tradition of winemaking goes back as far as 1860 when Santiago's maternal grandfather, Ángel, founded his own winery. This passion was passed down to his grandson, Santiago Ruiz, who, after retiring, decided to dedicate himself completely to the tradition of his ancestors. Thus, in 1984, he opened his eponymous winery.
Today, his legacy continues in the hands of his youngest daughter, Rosa Ruiz, who has been able to strike the difficult balance between traditions conserved through generations and the latest advances to safeguard and preserve the uniqueness and character of the wines.

The Father of Albariño

Long before the Rías Baixas Designation of Origin existed, wine was already made for domestic consumption in the subzone of O Rosal. This tradition also existed in the home of Santiago Ruiz, where his grandfather, Ángel, was the winemaker. Santiago Ruiz continued the tradition, incorporating innovative techniques, making the wines of O Rosal exemplary in terms of winemaking, drawing out the essence of native varietals. Passionate about his homeland, Galicia, and his wines, he travelled around Spain with his bottles under his arm, giving out samples and communicating his philosophy. This is why Santiago Ruiz became known as "the father of Albariño".
