Benito Vázquez was one of the promoters of the first albariño plantations in the Rías Baixas in the 70s. He is the founder of Bodegas Carballal, distinguished as Cabaleiro do Albariño and awarded a Medal of Galicia in 2005 for his entrepreneurial career. He transmitted to his relatives the enthusiasm and philosophy of the authentic work in the vineyard. In the 80s, Bodegas Carballal was part of the small group of winegrowers and winemakers who promoted the constitution of the Rías Baixas D.O. They are one of the few wineries that, today, have old vines in their vineyard. With them, they make the Albariño Carballal Cepas Vellas. They were the first winery in Salnés to acquire stainless steel containers for the production of Albariños. They are pioneers in the maintenance of the vineyard with permanent vegetation cover. At the time, few believed in the efficacy of this method. However, today we know that this cover is the best for the vine: it helps its longevity and the ripening of the grape, avoids strain on the vines, provides natural organic matter and even contributes to the sustainability of the planet by retaining CO2 in soil. Since 2004 they have made what was the first blend of Salnés, their 7 Cepas, made with Albariño, Loureiro and Treixadura. In 2015 they launched Floreano e Punto, an Albariño that takes artisan production to the extreme by macerating the grape as was done in the wines of yesteryear. Also they make an Albariño with a sulphite level below 40mg / liter; a real oenological challenge for which, once again, they are at the forefront. Its name, a declaration of intent: Prologue.
