  • La Ribeira Sacra, la comunin perfecta entre la naturaleza y el vino

    En Galicia, la zona ms verde y hmeda del noroeste de Espaa, se encuentra una tierra legendaria, mgica y misteriosa, La Ribeira Sacra. Una tierra de extraordinaria belleza y grandes contrastes, sus profundos valles fluviales, conjugan unos suelos arcillosos ricos en minerales, con un soleado clima mediterrneo, dando lugar a un entorno nico para el cultivo de los viedos, una personalidad nica que se refleja en sus vinos.

    La Ribeira Sacra, the perfect marriage

    of nature and wine

    In Galicia, the lush area to the northwest of Spain that receives the most rain, there is a legendary, magical and mystical land called Ribeira Sacra (the sacred fertile plain). This is a land of extraordinary beauty and strong contrasts, with deep river valleys, where its loamy earth that is rich in minerals, combines with a sunny Mediterranean climate. This provides a unique setting for growing grapes that have a special personality that is reflected in the Ribeira Sacra wines.

    Menca, la perla tinta de la Ribeira Sacra

    La uva menca es una variedad autctona del noroeste espaol, de origen milenario, por sus caractersticas distintivas, genera vinos que merece la pena descubrir, de intenso color frambuesa, aromas penetrantes a frutas, pero tambin delicados a flores, buenas dosis alcohlicas, buena acidez y

    posibilidades de crianza con un paladar aterciopelado caracterstico.

    La uva menca destaca por su buena capacidad de envejecimiento, de ella se obtienen vinos que buscan sacar a flote toda su potencia y la

    expresividad del terruo, vinos equilibrados y bien estructurados, que resultan redondos y amplios en boca.

    Menca, the red pearl of the Ribeira Sacra

    The menca variety of grape is autochthonous to the northwest of Spain, and its origins date back over a millennium. Due to its characteristics,

    the wines produced from this grape are well-worth discovering. They have an intense raspberry color, penetrating fruity aroma that also

    carries a delicate floral scent. They have a high alcohol content, good acidity, age well and have a characteristically velvet finish.

    The menca grape is distinguished for its aging ability. This grape produces wines that demonstrate all of its strength and the

    expressiveness of the land it comes from. They are balanced and well-structured, with a full-bodied, lengthy aftertaste.

  • Un Origen Milenario, un Carcter nico

    El origen milenario del menca se remonta a la llegada de las legiones romanas a Espaa, hace ms de 2.000 aos, quienes identificaron en esta zona un Terroir nico y privilegiado para el cultivo de este vino, que se destinaba al disfrute de los emperadores de la Roma Imperial.

    Varios siglos ms tarde el auge de los monasterios medievales y la difusin del Camino de Santiago, propici su mayor esplendor. A travs de los peregrinos se divulgaron las excelencias de estos vinos y licores y su importancia fue tal que llegaron a utilizarse como moneda de cambio.

    Esta tradicin secular se ha sido mantenida hasta la actualidad por los viticultores de esta zona, autnticos artesanos del vino.

    The thousand-year-old origin of the menca grape dates back to the arrival of the Roman legions to Spain over 2,000 years ago. The Romans found here a unique Terroir that was perfect for producing this wine, enjoyed by the emperors of Imperial Rome.

    Several hundred years later, the drastic increase in medieval monasteries and the spreading of news about the Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James) pilgrimage route, provided the opportunity for its greatest splendor. The pilgrims shared the excellence of these wines and liqueurs and it became so important in the day it was even exchanged as a form of money.

    This secular tradition is still maintained today by the vine growers in the area, who are master craftsmen in the art of making wine.
