The founder of HGA Bodegas, Horacio Gormez Araujo was born at the foot of what is now the largest continuous planting of Albariño in private hands in the Rias Baixas DO. 100Ha in size, and unusually for the region it is planted on steep terraces. The vineyard, Altos de Torona is located in the Rosal sub district of Rias Baixas. Torre de Ermelo is typical of the sub-zone, aromatic, fruit driven, but with dry minerality and stone fruit character.
