Terra Minei

Galicia in northwest Spain is home to the red and white DO Ribeiro (meaning riverbank), set amongst the river valleys of Miño. It is here that Terra Minei lies, in a region that had successfully exported wines to international markets from the Middle Ages before succumbing to phylloxera and replanting with Palomino. A collective return to indigenous varieties such as Treixadura and Torrentés as well as a number of rediscovered indigenous reds has created a stir in the region of late.

Terra Minei was founded in 1956 in the village of Prado de Miño where the soils are sandy loam and granite and there is a mild microclimate aided by proximity to the Mino River. Operating as an estate winery with a few select growers they produce floral, precise, elegant white wines made from Treixadura, Torrontés, Godello and Palomino.

Grapes are harvested by hand and native yeast is used; fermentation is in temperature controlled stainless steel.
