Maior de Mendoza is a winery based in Pontevedra in Galicia (Spain) surrounded by vineyards and is on the hillside that descends on the fishing village of Carril, famous for producing the best clams in the world.
The process that has made them famous and different from the rest of the Rías Baixas DO is the use of lees, in which they have been pioneers, a technique they have been applying since their first harvest, when it was almost unknown in Galicia.
"Sobre Lias" means on lees.
