Lomba dos Ares is a blend of native grapes - Mencía, Mouratón, Garnacha Tintorera, Caiño and Bastardo - that captures the essence of Ribeira Sacra with a perfumed nose and plenty of freshness and finesse on the palate. It's not surprising that beautiful places like this produce soulful wines. Red fruits, orange peel, violets and cedar come in layers making this delicious to sip solo but also very versatile with charcuterie, roasted vegetable or pork dishes.

About Fedellos do Couto

Fedellos was started in 2013 by Luis Taboada and winemakers Curro Barreño and Jesús Olivares. Couto refers to the 12th-century manor at the heart of the vineyards, which has been in Luis' family for generations and now serves as the base for the winery. They farm organically and work their vineyards by hand. You couldn't do otherwise on the terraces that hug the steep valleys of the rivers Sil and Bibei in Ribeira Sacra. These rivers have moulded the breathtaking landscape in North West Spain, carving out vast canyons and vertiginous valleys.

You find myriad indigenous grape varieties here -  Mencía, Mouratón, Garnacha Tintorera, Caiño and Bastardo. The wines are gently fermented with natural yeasts in old oak and all share an Atlantic freshness and a slatey minerality that make them unmistakably Galician.
