Ribeiro, the small appellation in Galicia is rooted with ancient winemaking history. The area is a hodgepodge of gardens, vines, and farms planted through the local river valley surrounded by mountains. Though vines have been planted here dating back to medieval times, Emilo Rojo began this winery with the intent to refocus the passion for indigenous local varieties. He worked with the uniqueness of the land by utilizing the varying hillside exposures and terracing the vines. Harvest is a laborious one as each vine is harvested one by one ensuring each vine receives the attention it deserves.
This is a field blend of several white varieties native to the northerly region of Ribeiro where it’s not only cooler, but close to the Atlantic coastline. The fruit is sourced from 12 plots with various terroirs and harvest dates. Aging takes place between steel, concrete, and a mix of barrel sizes.
