14.50 €/un.

The human project of the Ponte da Boga Winery is the recognition of the exceptional effort involved in maintaining standing the cultivation of impossible plots, which require the infinite love of the vine grower to their land. Ponte da Boga Bancales Olvidados encompassed in the regulatory board Ribeira Sacra D.O. is elaborated with Mencía grapes, from singular plots on the Bibei and the Sil, where small plots full of ancient vines cling to the rock to produce a few grams of delicious grapes, they are cultivated with absolute passion. Ponte da Boga Bancales Olvidados is a selection of grapes from quality wine growers from different subzones of the Ribeira Sacra D.O. to those who rely on the cultivation of their vines; they are Low Performance Mencía vineyards (4,500 bottles) with ages ranging from 20 years to centenary strains. The majority is raised in wood but a percentage of about 30% is made in stainless steel. It is a deeper and more structured red wine, with more mineral expression and that explores a more racial soil expression.

The Ponte da Boga Winery is located in Castro Caldelas (Ribeiras do Sil) and has been owned since 2006 by Hijos de Rivera (Estrella Galicia group), Ponte da Boga is part of the new group of wineries that are recovering the vineyards, rediscovering autochthonous grape varieties and applying new elaboration formulas in the beautiful and rugged Galician Ribeira Sacra Designation of Origin. Its origins go back to 1989, when a family of the municipality had the vision of creating a large vineyard whose plots were even closed to mode of a Burgundian clos. The production was abandoned in the seventies and resumed with new owners at the end of the nineties (although the project did not materialize until the arrival of the brewing company). With more than 20 hectares owned, however, they work with grapes from different places of the denomination under the oenological advice of the Frenchman Dominique Roujou. The philosophy is based on the defense of a “heroic winegrower” given the difficulties of working the vineyard on steep slopes. The best possible integration in the environment is sought by betting on small terraces of one or two rows of vineyards that do not alter the original orography of the landscape. There is also a clear vocation for local varieties beyond the majority grape, the Mencía, and for the production of white wines. In the elaboration, aging is carried out in stainless steel tanks, both in white and red wines, and the coupage between the latter and aged parts in barrel is usual.
