100% Mencia - Among the world’s most ambitious yet intimate wine estates (to which one usually arrives by boat), Finca Míllara is the dream of Fernando de Santiago, who fell in love with the emerging, dramatic and nearly inaccessible Ribeira Sacra wine district, a historically significant wine region that had been virtually abandoned. In 2000, he began purchasing parcels in the uninhabited hamlet of A Míllara overlooking the Miño, eventually acquiring the entire township and its surrounding slopes from hundreds of proprietary descendants. Reclaiming and restructuring the vineyard terraces A Míllara itself, following strict guidelines to maintain original architecture, incorporated the modern winemaking and aging facility. All grapes are hand harvested and the clusters are passed through the selection table and the grapes are introduced with a percentage of stem in foudres of French oak with native yeasts. Then aged for 3 months in French oak barrels.
