A Villeira

A Villeira is a stone-terraced vineyard plot of some 2 hectares. It was built by hand in the 19th century. It lies in the northern area of the Valdeorras region, in the Village os As Ermitas, on the southern side of the Bibei river.

The plot, built on terraces, is subject to a wide variety of climatic exposures. The soil is granitic and, because of its mountainous location, the only way to work the land is by hand or with the help of animals.

Sustainable viticulture is carried out.

Hard harvesting in 15kg crates permits grape selection. It is then followed by whole punch fermentation in small oak vessels.

Fermentation is completed using the yeasts naturally present on the grapes.

“The grapes for this wine come from the A Villeira vineyard (Abejera). Located in As Ermitas, Valdeorras, this is an excellent vineyard of exceptional quality. A fresh wine with some influence of other varieties: Mencía, Garnacha Tintorera, Brancellao, Sousón, and Merenzao”
DISCOVER MORE Los Carismáticos “Los Carismáticos represents a revival of the reviled Merenzao grape variety, a wine that older generations will say was the tastiest and their first choice for producing wine at home for their own enjoyment”
