My Notes:

About Adega Cachin:

Beginning in the early 1990s, the DO Ribeira Sacra began to take form and the Enríquez family started the process of reclaiming their historic site, Peza do Rei. Eight acres of vertiginous, single-row slate terraces form a perfect southfacing amphitheater on the Edo River tributary of the Sil. Varieties planted her by the family are Mencia for reds, Godello, Treixadura and Albariño for whites.
