 We must recognize that we love the Galician wines. Occasionally , we find those little gems in the middle of nowhere , small wine projects that come our way thanks to the miracles that make social networks. So that was the way how we met Gelin, one of the persons in charge of this re-founded winery in 1999 along with Emilio -son of the entrepreneurial patriarch Bernardino Rodríguez- in the DO Ribeira Sacra with some very high quality products and handicrafts . you can feel and taste Ribeira’s terroir while enjoying one of the wines with any traditional meal, no matter if it’s Galician or not. You can see the magic Galicia in a glass of these wines.

So, if you come across with this wonderful winery and its wines, do not hesitatre and try them because I’m sure they will surprise you.
