Castro Candaz A Boca do Demo is a red wine from the D.O. Ribeira Sacra produced by Raúl Pérez. This wine is made using only Mencía (100%) grapes.

Castro Candaz A Boca do Demo was conceived at the hands of Raúl Pérez: a winemaker who spent his early career in El Bierzo, where he scored an outstanding 98 Parker Points for the 2005 vintage of Ultreia de Valtuille. Just the mention of his name rings connotations of success, with his wines renowned all over the globe. This collection Castro Candaz, from the D.O. Ribeira Sacra, is a collaboration with another known winemaker, and friend, Rodrigo Méndez.

Cultivated in the municipality of Chantada, the grapes used to make Castro Candaz A Boca do Demo are grown on sandy soils located on steep slopes. The local climate receives Atlantic influences, even in the areas close to the riverbeds are usually warmer.

After the harvest has taken place and they have been transported to the winery, the grapes undergo fermentation. Following this, the wine is aged in chestnut wood vats. The vinification and manufacturing processes are carried out using traditional methods, drawing on the experience of the two oenologists in charge of the project.

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.
