Description

Rafael Palacios began his personal project in 2004, in the sub-area of ​​Valle del Bibei – municipality of O Bolo, Valdeorras D.O, buying old vineyards of the native white Godello variety from elderly winegrowers. The extreme orography and the low production of its not very fertile soils, the phylloxera and the depression of the 1920s, led to the almost total abandonment of this small but historic wine region. Grown mainly on terraces, these small plots were inherited by these grape growers by lottery, “Sorte” in Gallego. They are located in the westernmost part of the region, at the foot of the central massif of Ourense where the geological history of the region is strongly influenced by the starting material, granite, mainly in its morphology and physical characteristics. They are sandy soils that are formed by the natural degradation of this granite rock and by the presence of quartz shales. They are not very fertile, acidic and erodible soils, for this, light tilling machinery has been adapted in order to take care of the structure of their terraces, as well as the incorporation of traditional tillage with animal traction, thus recovering traditional viticulture and historical landscape of the Bibei Valley.
