Background: Anónimas Viticultoras is the project of winemakers Cris Yagüe Cuevas and Maria Falcón. Based in Rias Baixas, where Cris has made wine for many years, and where Maria’s family has done so for generations, they also source fruit from around Galicia. Fresh and elegant wines. In Cris’ words, “Anónimas is a project from the vine to the consumer, a tribute to the anonymous women that should have had their place in history and were never recognized. We collaborate with other women in the world of wine—growers, winemakers, enologists—to make these personal wines.”
