Ribeira Sacra

Curro Barreño and Jesús Olivares, are originally from the Gredos region. For their Fedellos project they work in two areas. The rent vineyards in Ribeira Sacra on terraces along the steep slopes of the rivers Sil and Bibei, planted with a myriad of grape varieties, altitudes, and expositions. On these steep sites all work is by hand - you couldn't do otherwise on these steep terraces! The wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts, at low temperatures to favour a gentle extraction of colour and phenolics. They are then aged in old barrels and are bottled unfined, unfiltered and with the addition of low quantities of sulphur. All the wines share an Atlantic freshness and a slatey minerality that make these wines unmistakably Galician.
