wines we enjoy.
Our land provides
the essential components
and our challenge is to
interpret these to transform
them into wines of
excellent quality.

RAÍCES DEL MIÑO

The Raíces del Miño village wines pay homage to the community work of family “minifundios” (smallholdings) which are helping Galicia’s ancient wine-making tradition shine once again. The sparsely populated towns, the small rock soil villages surrounded by vineyards, the terraced views facing the winding Miño river, and the valleys defined by the Avia and the Arnoia rivers in the Ribeiro region, all contribute to making wines of exceptional quality.

The first wines of this project are two whites of regional varieties which are produced in limited batches, but there are plans for the near future to produce other wines from the Ribeiro and Ribeira Sacra.

Raíces del Miño Treixadura, D.O. Ribeiro.

This wine represents the iconic white variety of the Ribeiro. It is the queen of vineyards, distinguished and harmonious, and sensitive to altitude, which is why it is mainly grown on hillsides with good orientation. With a pale yellow color and green hues, this wine has a deep nose with notes of fresh flowers, green apple, pears, apricot, and freshly-ground white pepper. The mouthfeel is light with a tense acidity that defines a rich freshness, while displaying a flavorful fruity taste. Medium to long lasting finish with a fresh fruit aftertaste.

2017

Raíces del Miño Cepas Autóctonas, D.O. Ribeiro

This white blend features 50% of Treixadura, 45% of Albariño, 4% of Godello and only 1% of Loureira, with a smooth combination of the local traditional varieties. With a pale yellow color and green hues, it is intense on the nose, with notes of fresh citrus, stone fruits, green apple and pineapple. On the palate, it is medium-bodied, slightly oily, and with a strong acidity that defines its freshness. Tropical aftertaste with a medium finish.
