2019 Bodegas Ronsel do Sil 'Alpendre' Ribeira Sacra, Spain
The objective of Ronsel do Sil is the making of high quality wines inside the Denominacion de Origen Ribeira Sacra. With this aim, cultivates two hectares of vineyards, part owned by us and part leased to local viticulturists. The totality of the land is harvested by hand in the steep bancales (old terraces built by the ancient Romans), characteristic of Ribeira Sacra. The varietals cultivated are: Mencía and Merenzao (red grapes); and Godello, Treixadura, Dona Branca (white grapes), used to produce young wines, some of them with brief aging in American and French oak barrels. Recently, a garden with plenty of different types of indigenous Galician varietals has been planted, located at the perimeter of our wine cellar on the banks of the Sil River.
