Ribeiro, Galicia

This estate is found in Monterrei, in the southeast corner of Galicia, in the province of Ourense. Monterrei is the youngest DOP appellation in Galicia, though wine has been made here since the time of the Romans. The estate’s 10 hectares are found on the banks of the Tâmega River, a tributary of the Douro River. First planted in 1970, their vines grow on trellises, as is typical here, to maximize sun exposure and prevent fungal issues by allowing oceanic breezes to blow beneath the vines. Pazo das Tapias grows only Godello and Mencía, having devoted themselves to recovering these indigenous varieties and elevating them to their highest potential.
