About this WINE

Dominio do Bibei

Dominio do Bibei

Ribeira Sacra is one of the most exciting regions to emerge from Spain in recent years. Situated in the North-Eastern corner in Galicia, the area is remote, the landscape arid and mountainous. Domino do Bibei's winemaker, Javier Domínguez, is producing modern wines with beautiful definition and verve, using traditional grape varieties such as Mencia, Garnacha and Muraton for the reds and Godello, Albariño and Dona Blanca in his whites.

The vineyards are steeply terraced at high altitude, up to 670 metres. There is little top soil with the old vines working hard to survive amongst the rocky terrain of slate/schist. These are thoughtful wines which not only please but also challenge the senses through their extraordinary purity and detail. No stainless steel is used, fermentation and storage is in wood and cement. Grapes are hand harvested and are fed via a gravity system.

Godello

Godello

Godello is a white grape variety primarily found in northwest Spain and northern Portugal. The grape is capable of producing very fine white wines, and it is in the Valdeorras region that its greatest successes are seen, leading to a steady increase in plantings there. Bodegas Rafael Palacios (managed by the brother of Spain’s leading winemaker Alvaro Palacios) has been the driving force behind the revival of the grape.

In Jancis Robinson MW words' "Godello combines the structure of white burgundy with the finesse of a juicily mineral grape".
