Bodegas Martín Códax was founded in 1986 and was named after the best-known Galician troubadour whose medieval poems are the oldest-known Galician writings in existence. Ninth generation winemaker Luciano Amoedo crafts Cuatro Pasos wines from four high-altitude vineyards in the mountains on the León-Galicia border, each planted over 80 years ago.
