Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Do Ferreiro Cepas Vellas is a single-variety Albariño white wine produced by Gerardo Méndez in the D.O. Rías Baixas.

The Gerardo Méndez winery was founded in 1975 through a passion for the Albariño native variety, a passion that the winemaker himself expressed by creating the Rías Baixas denomination. They now cultivate a total of 5 hectares of vineyards that lie in the highest part of Rías Baixas. These are limited, artisan productions.

Do Ferreiro Cepas Vellas comes from very old vines, some of which are around 200 years old. The vines spread over less than one hectare of land, on sandy soils with a granitic rock bed. From these vines they only produce between 5,000 and 9,000 litres, depending on the vintage. 10% of the grapes are left on the vine so that they reach botrytis noble state, and the harvest is completely manual.

In the winery, the grapes are destemmed and then undergo cold film maceration. Then the Do Ferreiro Cepas Vellas grapes are pressed and the must ferments using the ‘pie de cuba’ method. Finally the wine rests on its own fine lees in stainless steel tanks for about 12 months.

Do Ferreiro Cepas Vellas is a very elegant white wine with surprising complexity and depth. A small production from one estate that is smaller then one hectare and only made in years when the grapes are in the best condition.

Rías Baixas wines would not be where they are today without the native Albariño grape variety. Although red wines are also produced in Rías Baixas, practically 100% of Rías Baixas wines are white. Among them, the vast majority of them are made with the Albariño grape. As well as young wines, fresh and aromatic, the region also makes wines aged in the barrels, complex wines with great personalities. Albariño wines can either be single varieties, or be part of a blend with other characteristic grapes of the region: Treixadura, Loureira Blanca and Godello.
