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 vineyards are situated in the village of Gomariz, in the heart of the Ribeiro DO in north western Spain. Consisting of several indigenous varieties to Galicia including Lado and Treixadura, the vines vary in age from 60 to 90 years and are planted at a density of 4,000 to 7,000 vines per hectare. These old vines are low yielding, with deep root systems that impart complex flavours and result in soft, sweet tannins in the wine. The vineyards sit at an altitude of 180 to 250 metres and the soils are a mix of clay and schist.
