Known for its wines in classical times, Valdeorras (the sub region) has made huge strides in recovering its native grapes – one of which is Mencía – in the last thirty years and in making distinctive varietal wines from them. Valdeorras DO is located in north western Spain and this 100% Mencia shows a great blend of red berries, currants and fig jam. Combined with subtle tannin and peppery undertones this make for a supremely high quality wine.
Camino de Cabras are Marina and Santiago who create the best Galician wines with the best grapes that their Atlantic corner gives them (using Rías Baixas and Valdeorras grapes). Savage Vines also sell their Albariño made from vines planted in Condado do Tea and Val do Salnés. Production limited to less than 50,000 bottles per annum (which is relatively small for a Spanish winery).
