85% Mencia, 10% Tempranillo, 5% Garnacha - 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. This vineyard site is situated 200 meters above sea level in the lower part of the hill closest to the river banks of the Miño where orange trees thrive. The clusters pass through the selection table and the grapes are introduced with a percentage of stem. Malolactic fermentation takes place in 6500 liter oak foudres and additionally aged for 6 months in French oak. Fermentation with native yeasts.
