In the heart of the Ribeira Sacra
The winery is located in the place of O Mollón, parish Viñoás (Nogueira de Ramuin), in an old stone house, which has adequate facilities for production of 20,000 liters.
We are currently conducting an expansion of facilities that produce up to 80,000 liters allow maintaining our philosophy of limited production. After a first stage in which the wine is distributed exclusively among a very limited circle of friends of the winery (1986/1999), in 2000 we joined the Designation of Origin Ribeira Sacra.
Most of the grapes come from our vineyards.
