Located high up in beautiful Bierzo, Spain is the vineyard of Martin Codax, it is here that the inspiration came for 'Cuarto Pasos' - 'Four Steps'. One morning whist going about their daily routine, an employee of Martin Codax noticed four bears footsteps in the vineyard, thought to be from a female searching the area for food. These foot steps relate to the four important processes in wine making - the selection of the land, nurturing of the vines, a suitable climate and vinification. This is the story of how Cuarto Pasos was born.
The winery was founded in 1986 as a cooperative with fifty local growers and named after the medieval Galacian performer, composer and songwriter, Martin Codax. The first wines were greatly enjoyed and to increase production and to maintain supply of high quality Albarino grapes, Martin Codax acquired its own vineyards and made long term deals with growers. Today Martin Codax manages 1400 vineyard parcels farmed by 550 families in the Rias Baixas region.
