"Vinigalicia Familia Bodeguera, has its origin in the year 1940 in Chantada, when Manuel Méndez and Maruja Otero founded" Casa Penouzos ".

In the heart of Galicia, where the steep rocks are root, cradle and shelter, where the land is transformed into wine, where the heroes sign their deeds, it is there, in Chantada, where in 1940 our history begins. It is in those years, when Manuel Méndez and Maruja Otero founded Casa Penouzos, a small establishment dedicated to the hotel trade and the sale of wines, which soon becomes a place of recognized passage and highly valued in the area.

Years later, and with the help of their children, they decide to dedicate themselves exclusively to the world of wine and create the Penouzos wineries. The demand of the sector and the good operation of the wineries, encourage the Méndez family to create the first company in the area dedicated fully to the
wine industry and founded in 1976 Vínicola de Chantada S.A.

      

From a small family winery in Chantada,
to a business group with presence in the 5 Galician denominations of origin?

   


In the 90s, the good position of the company in the market and the increase in demand in the sector make the third generation of the family bet on growth and diversification through the training of ViniGalicia, which, Today, it has a presence in all the appellations of origin of Galicia, which makes it possible to offer a portfolio of first quality products based on origin.
   

Only the love for the world of wine can explain the struggle and the determined commitment initiated by our ancestors to recover the historic viticulture of the area and project it with hopes for the future; today we join these reasons to ensure that our wide range of wines and varietals can be internationally appreciated. That future in which they believed is, nowadays, thanks to work, illusion and in many cases tears, the beginning of a reality.
