Winemaker Xosé Lois Sebio has produced this stunning eponymous collection of wines as a result of a personal quest: to find wines with unique personality from more risky processing zones and with a very marked identity. This original and quirky range is made from high quality grapes in areas which are often neglected or simply different; vineyards that are difficult to farm due to the high costs of conventional viticulture. Away from fashions and conventions, the sole intention is to respect and express the soil, variety and area; producing wines with soul and personality. The wines are vinified with minimal intervention and low sulphur. These are collectable wines for lovers of the authentic and different.

The DO Valdeorras is an inland Galician appellation in northern Spain, which is becoming renowned for its white wines from the Godello grape. The grapes for Mais Ala come from 30 year old vines, grown in a single vineyard named ‘A Barca en a Falcoeira’. The vineyard is set on the hillside at an altitude of 600 to 650 metres above sea level, where cooler nights give diurnal temperature differences encouraging the natural acidity to remain in the grapes resulting in a fresh style of wine. The vines are planted at a density of 4,000 vines per hectare and are nourished by granitic soils; specifically the local decomposed granitic-sandy soil known as 'Xabre'. Manual harvest takes place at optimal maturity.
