Characteristics of Ponte da Boga Mencía

Ponte da Boga Mencía is a red wine made with the Mencía variety by Ponte da Boga in the D.O. Ribeira Sacra.

Ponte da Boga is a winery located in Terra de Caldelas (Galicia), a privileged part of the Ribeira Sacra that works to preserve ancient grape varieties that were around in Roman times. Although the winery’s origins date back to 1898, it was 2005 when Corporación Hijos de Rivera took over and commercialised the operation, combining traditional methods with the most modern winemaking techniques.

Ponte da Boga Mencía comes from one of the Iberian Peninsula’s most difficult to access slopes, between the Sil and Miño rivers. These are old strains planted in slate, shale and gravel soils, influenced by the Atlantic climate and cultivated through what is commonly known as “heroic viticulture”. A term that refers to the challenging conditions of the land that the vine grower has to face in order to achieve a very high quality grape. The harvest is carried out manually at the optimum moment of ripeness.

When the grape reaches the winery, it is destemmed and gently pressed. Then the Ponte da Boga Mencía ferments at a controlled temperature of between 24 and 29ºC over 10 days. During this time, the wine is gently pumped over and macerated with the skins for about 8 days. It is then aged for 6 months in stainless steel tanks.

Ponte da Boga Mencía is a red wine that really reveals the fragrant profile and the unique elegance of one of the region’s favorite varieties: Mencía.

Designation of Origin D.O. Ribeira Sacra

Winery Ponte da Boga

Ribeira Sacra is one of those magical places that you just have to visit to truly experience it. The vertiginous terraces rise steep on the banks of the river Sil, making the terrain difficult to work on that it requires complete manual work and labor on the vineyards. The agriculture carried out here is aptly referred to as ‘heroic agriculture’, due to the hard work carried out cultivating the land. Both red and white wines are produced in the Ribeira Sacra. The red wines are mostly made with the Mencía variety, defined by their expressive and elegant character with a good acidity. The Ribeira Sacra white wines are principally made with the Godello and Albariño varieties. They are wines with a good volume in the mouth, aromatic and fruity. The Ribeira Sacra wines are often come in very limited productions, are of high quality and with notable personalities.
