Ponte da Boga Porto de Lobos is a red wine made by Ponte da Boga with the ancient Brancellao variety in the D.O. Ribeira Sacra.

Ponte da Boga is a centuries-old winery located in one of the most privileged areas within the Ribeira Sacra. Since it was taken over by Corporación Hijos de Rivera in 2005, the winery has been trying to revive ancient varieties like Brancellao, Sousón and Merenzao and use new technologies that make it easier and more accessible to cultivate on such incredible slopes, using drones for example.

At an altitude of 350 and 450 metres, the Ponte da Boga Porto de Lobos vineyards lie in a privileged position on shale-based soils and facing the sun. Vineyards lying on 60% inclines that enforce some heroic viticulture especially when it comes to the harvest, where the only tool that can be used is a harness.

The Ponte da Boga Porto de Lobos grape is destemmed and pressed in the winery. Then it ferments for 10 days with gentle pump overs and a maceration of between 8 and 10 days. The wine is then aged in second- or third-use French oak barrels for 10 months.

Ponte da Boga Porto de Lobos is an ancient ruling variety that represents the complex nuances offered by Atlantic viticulture like nothing else.

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.
