Los Carismáticos

The Merenzao grapes come from our “Los Carismáticos” vineyard, which, at 0.3 ha, is situated on the south bank of the River Bibei in the village of As Ermitas, located in the northern part of Valdeorras. This vineyard is in the form of an amphitheatre and has poor, shallow, sandy soils consisting of decomposed granite. It is subject to a wide variety of climatic exposures.

The vineyard terraces are made of stone and were hand-built in the 19th century; the vines themselves are more than 50 years old. The mountainous relief of the area means that the only way to work the soil is either manually or with animals.

Sustainable viticulture techniques are in place.

The harvest was by hand, allowing for grape selection. These were transported in 15kg crates. Fermentation was spontaneous using wild yeasts in four 500 litre capacity barrels. This began with whole bunches, with progressive stem removal.
