What my heart dreams about

As nonfigurative painting, my eyes were lost in those shades of greenish with its relifs and some shades of blue. Might it be because it reflects the land where it comes from of high hillsides, neverending rivers that end up at the vast ocean, from a land where each bottle has its own personality, where each plants tells a story.

From that dreamland, that bottle that from which I lose my own person and I even forget my name, I only remember his. Armontes.  I just disvover the Galician lands that my heart dreams of every night.  What a glass of that tasty morsel made from grapes that I discover any of those days forgetting about what was that thing that brought me into this wonderful world of wine.

From Galician mountains emanates the history, lives the lad, time passes by unaware of the world.

“The nature still domain in Xagoaza. In its steep slopes, our vineyards grow up and require a work by hand every day. Armontes expresses all the character and personality of Godello grapes, that we harvest with effort in the same vineyard that names this wine”. The Winery.

In the nose it is fruity, with banana, fresh notes and lichis, anise and citrus hints. Elegant and fine aromas. Nice.

  1. I think you will have to come back to Galicia soon to explore the other DO regions you have not yet visited: Monterrei, Rías Baixas, Ribeira Sacra and Ribeiro.
