Singular D. Pedro de Soutomaior

Pedro Madruga: That noble Galician warrior, feudal gentleman in Galicia at end of the 15th century—whose victories are attributed in great measure to his habit of being an early riser—stars in the most epic story ever told, in an exciting historic setting.  

This singular wine by Martín Códax pays tribute to figure who will forever be linked to the exaltation of our culture.
