Ribeiro is one of the oldest wine-growing areas in Spain. Its wines had a great reputation in the Middle Ages, being even the first wines to set foot in America. He is, certainly, one of the most magical artisans that are crafting wines in this area.

 

Jorge is the young man behind Bodegas L'Ombre. Here, he is farming a 1.5ha clos-like vineyard at the shore of the Miño river planted with 3 local varieties ranging from 70 to 110 years old vines. His traditional old winery was built underground in the XV century, with big granite walls that keep a constant cool temperature. Vinification is made naturally and spontaneously; resulting in elegant, rounded, mineral, and complex wines. All the wines develop “flor” naturally due to the humidity and temperature of the winery.

 

Pinka is a white wine made using a rare local variety, called Caiño Blanco sourced from 70 to 90 year old vines (only 0.3 has) within the same vineyard as his Treixadura. At the winery, the winemaking is naturally done: It ferments on the skins very slowly in inox. After, the wine is left on its lees for 4 months without undertaking batonagge. Such a different wine, golden in color, loaded with stone fruits, and a very linear backbone. Probably one of the most granitic mouthfeels we’ve ever tasted. Great length.
