A Villeira

A Villeira is a stone-terraced vineyard plot of some 2 hectares. It was built by hand in the 19th century. It lies in the northern area of the Valdeorras region, in the Village os As Ermitas, on the southern side of the Bibei river.

The plot, built on terraces, is subject to a wide variety of climatic exposures. The soil is granitic and, because of its mountainous location, the only way to work the land is by hand or with the help of animals.

Sustainable viticulture is carried out.

Hard harvesting in 15kg crates permits grape selection. It is then followed by whole punch fermentation in small oak vessels.

Fermentation is completed using the yeasts naturally present on the grapes.

This wine aims to reflect the identity of Éntoma red wine: a wine that showcases the potential of Atlantic red wines from the banks of the Sil and Galir valley”
