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 three vineyards planted with 70 to 110 years old vines of Treixadura. 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, spontaneous and slow fermentation with native yeast; resulting in elegant, rounded, mineral, and complex wines. All the wines develop “flor” naturally due to the humidity and temperature of the winery.

 

At the winery, this Treixadura from 2020 undertakes skin maceration for 4 days. Fermentation is very slow, taking around 30 days. The wine it’s left to age on its lees under a very thick flor for 7 months with no battonagge. Limited production of 6000 bottles. Very subtle and elegant. Direct & precise winemaking.
