2008 Ribeira Sacra Verdes Matas Mencía There's something comforting about this wine, as if entering the eye of a coastal storm where power and intensity surround you in a calm, almost perfect equilibrium. It's not an easy wine to describe, though it generated more descriptors than most-mountain ber­ries, wild strawberries, mountain flowers, acacia, honeycomb, fennel seed, freshly turned earth. And chorizo. Personally, I didn't want to leave this glass once I tasted it. The wine has a life of its own and seems to welcome you in.

Adega Pena das Donas Winery Image
The project Pena das Donas, S.L. was established in 2005 by two partners, both in love with wine tradition in the area, who share a vision of innovations both in viticulture and winemaking to bringing a new, distinct personality to the wines of Adega Pena das Donas. Jesús Vázquez Rodríguez (viticulture and winemaking) has been linked for many generations to these vineyards; Antonio Lombardía Crespo (Agricultural Engineer, and general management) has worked for long time as viticultural consultant for some entities and wineries in the area. Starting in the vineyards, Pena das Donas differentiates from other in the DO by dramatically reducing the yields compared to the rest of the viticultors of the area. The winery is recently constructed, and focuses production on their own 5 Has of vineyards, and the vineyards under their management and control to complete the production. All the vineyards are located in the slopes of Sil riverside, planted in very dramatic terraces.

The place Pena das Donas appears in old legends, still known by the inhabitants of the area. It is a small hill on the riverside of the Sil that sits in front of what was a Benedictine Monastery. In these legends, it is said that in the past there was a tunnel between the hill and the Monastery through which the monks could communicate with the outside world. Some more elicit versions point also that through that passageway women (nuns) were introduced in the Monastery.
