Ponte da Boga Bancales Olvidados is a single-variety Mencía red wine made by the Galician winery Ponte da Boga in the D.O. Ribeira Sacra.

Ponte da Boga is a Galician winery that has the most authentic ancient vineyards and traditions. Located in Terras Caldelas since 1898, they have managed to cultivate the area’s incredible slopes through heroic viticulture and cutting-edge winemaking. Currently the winery belongs to Corporación Hijos de Rivera.

Ponte da Boga Bancales Olvidados comes from small single plots lying by the Bibei and Sil rivers. These plots are planted with old vines on slate and shale soils in a contrasting climate, providing a very low quantity but high quality yield. The harvest is carried out manually when the grapes reach their optimum ripeness.

After the grapes have been destemmed and pressed, Ponte da Boga Bancales Olvidados undergoes alcoholic fermentation for 10 days with maceration and gentle pumping over. Malolactic fermentation and aging continue in second and third use French oak barrels in the winery for 10 months.

Ponte da Boga Bancales Olvidados is a true Mencía in its purest form. A red wine made through the most distinctive landscape and climate.

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.
