Let us introduce ourselves, we are Simon and Noelia, wine growers, partners, husband and wife. It all started years ago when we set a challenge: return to Soutomaior’s Albariño wine the consideration and fame it always had. It was considered for many experts, the best in the world. We planted 6,000 albariño vines on an estate of 7 acres in the mountainside of the Verdugo river. We made a great effort to design a “perfect” plantation, which would exalt the characteristics of sub-area of Soutomaior .
To portray the true identity of “terroir”, we needed to renounce the freshness of young wine. That was how we got to develop a Albariño that reached its peak after the second year. The praise and recognition we are getting, make us feel motivated to continue to achieve the dream that pushed us at first.

Noelia Bebelia is a terroir driven, small winery whose underlying philosophy is to create premium wines that have a sense of time and place and that are a product of our mission/ vision and core values.
The five cornerstones of our winemaking philosophy can be summarized as follows:
Great wines are created in the vineyard where our winemaking starts. Sustainable practices coupled with a tremendous amount of hand labour permit us to keep our vines in balance and to manage our reduced yields.
Clean fresh fruit produces superior wine and, as such, we individually bunch sort all of our white wine grapes.
Less is more summarizes our non-interventionist, minimalist wine making approach.
Gentle handling of the wine throughout the winemaking process.
Patience, patience, patience, and then just a bit more patience.
Additionally, we will not release a wine if we do not believe that it meets our stringent quality standards and we will declassify a Terroir Series wine if the vintage or the wine does not warrant the Terroir Series designation.
Our wines are not made, but, are created by an uncompromising and passionate focus on quality and attention to detail in all aspects of the wine making process that permits the wine and the vineyard to express their true potential. The superb vineyard and terroir of the Noelia Bebelia of which we are the stewards, create the wine, our minimalist winemaking just lets the wine express its true potential. Santé!
