Bodegas Martín Códax was founded in 1986 and was named after the most known Galician troubadour whose medieval poems, the oldest in the Galician-Portuguese language, have survived to the present. In the poems, the troubadour sings to love, the sea and the coastline. Since its founding, Martín Códax has grown and developed, always supporting its people, its land and its culture.
The Martín Códax winery was founded in 1986 as a cooperative with about 50 local grape growers in Galicia in the northwest corner of Spain. From the first vintage, the wines were very well-received, and the winery expanded to meet the expectations of wine lovers at home and abroad. To maintain a supply of top-quality Albariño grapes, the winery acquired vineyards of its own and crafted long-term agreements with many family grape growers whose grapes met the winery's exacting standards. Today, Martín Códax oversees more than 1,400 small vineyard parcels farmed by 550 families in the Rías Baixas region around the town of Cambados. Martín Códax maintains its quality through continuous investment in research, innovation, and talented, creative people. The "signature” wine of Martín Códax is Albariño, the versatile white wine that has made Galicia famous among connoisseurs around the world. The wines of Martín Códax have won international acclaim and are sold in over 40 countries around the world, where they have come to symbolize Galician culture at its finest.
