Prado Alen

The wines of Prado Alen were born from a lifelong passion for the great wines of Spain. Winemaker Celso Cid was the son of a renowned wine distributor who grew up surrounded by wines and quickly developed a love for the wines of Galicia. He dedicated his life to producing wines made from the indigenous grapes of the region and the Prado Alen winery is the result. The Donna Danna wines from Prado Alen winery are made from Albariño, Torrontés, and Treixadura. Celso selects sustainably grown vineyards owned by his good friends and produces small quantities of these wines. The Albariño grape thrives in the mild, moist climate of Rias Baixas and the vineyards for Donna Danna Albariño are in the sub-region of Arbo near the border of Portugal. These shallow, sandy soils and proximity to the Atlantic Ocean create wines with bright fruit flavors and lively acids. The Torrontés and Treixadura grapes come from vineyards in the Prado de Miño sub-region of Ribeiro. This area is slightly dryer than Rias Baixas with a mixture of Atlantic and Mediterranean climates.
