Gran a Gran is an unctuous wine, sweet and expressive in aromas.

The three Rías Baixas of Pazo Baión are special wines, made from grapes harvested especially for their production. If this is true in the case of Pazo Baión and Vides de Fontán, it is even more important in the case of Gran a Gran. This Albariño is the result of a miracle: noble rot.

We are talking about an ideal Albariño to enjoy with the most delicious appetizers and the most succulent desserts. A semi-dry raisin wine that is surprising from the ripening of the grapes used to make it to its long development in the mouth, through its syrupy tones.
