2 AMIGOS brand of Albariño is the story of two explorers, two world travelers and two great friends. This is the story of a journey…that thirty years of friendship made this project possible.
During all this time, these best of friends, Henri and Rob, have shared all types of personal and professional experiences, projects, and many successes that have left their mark.
All of this has made them, and their friendship, what it is today. They wanted their 2 AMIGOS Albariño wine to stand out for its great quality and naturalness. They have taken advantage of the land that has been in their families for more than 300 years, remaining very conscious of the gift nature that has provided them the location of their vines, which together with the knowledge and experienced handed down, generation to generation of wine makers, has truly made 2 AMIGOS a wine treasure.

The home of 2 AMIGOS Albariño in the Rías Baixas appellation (La Denominación de Origen Rías Baixas) is a small wine-growing area in north-west Spain, in the region of Galicia. While Rías Baixas has long had a strong wine-growing tradition, passed down from generation to generation, it was only in 1988, with the setting up of the Rías Baixas Wine Regulating Council, that the wine-growing sector began to play a fundamental part in the development of the region’s economy. One of the key factors in its success has been the decision to continue growing the region’s indigenous grape varieties, in particular Albariño, which cope so well with the challenging local climate and impart genuine quality and a sense of place to wines that have a distinctly Atlantic character.
Largely made up of a patchwork of micro-plots of vines, typical of Galicia, the appellation currently covers a surface area of 4,061 hectares (10,030 acres), divided up into more than 21,825 plots of vines. 2 AMIGOS Albariño benefits from the manual skills and expertise of the area’s 5,500 and more vine growers, where traditional Galician vine-growing has been maintained, where the vines are still trained on pergolas, a growing system which requires pruning and harvesting work to be done totally by hand.
