  • About

Ribeira Sacra, growing Spanish do, created in 1996. It is the only galician region specializing in red wines, from the mencía grape, and some less well-known local varieties, together with some whites from Godello and Albariño. Since 2005 the region has won growing acclaim, particularly in the United States, where its top producers Algueira, Guímaro, Dominio do Bibei, Raúl Pérez, Ponte da Boga, and Envínate enjoy a certain cult status.
