Nestled deep in Galicia, in the region of
Ribeira Sacra on the banks of the River Sil, the Ponte da Boga
winery is set on acutely steep terraced slopes.
At harvest time, seasonal workers descend as if on a pilgrimage
to help pick the fruit from the steep and narrow terraces. Delicate
hands and nimble feet ensure the grapes are passed up the slopes to
the winery to begin the next stage of their journey. From vines,
often in excess of 100 years old, are fresh elegant expressions of
Albarino, Godello, Mencia and rare Merenzao. Cooled by the Atlantic
winds and basking in Spanish sunlight these precariously placed
vines produce wines of authenticity and heritage.
