Mencía 90% and a blend (10%) of Brancellao, Mouratón, Sousón, and Garnacha.

This mencía-based wine is fermented in a combination of 2,500L, 3,500L, and 4,500L oak tanks. The wine is aged on the lees for 13 months in old French Barrels and then 7 months in 4,500L French oak tanks. 16 months in bottle before release.

Dominio do Bibei is located in the Quiroga-Bibei sub-zone of the Ribeira Sacra D.O. Like all Ribeira Sacra sub-zones, this area is one of spectacular mountain ranges and flowing rivers, but it is drier and harsher than the other sub-zones. Javier Domínguez is the author of this crazy adventure to recapture a once grand vineyard. Javier’s vision of austerity and respect for the history is reflected in the winery and its simple design. Gravity rules. There are no stainless steel tanks; wood or cement are the vehicles of choice and they come in all different sizes. The idea is to return to the past to rediscover what was once here, so the estate follows many of the ideas of bio-dynamic viticulture to obtain the purest expression
of this terruño.

Planted on these terraces are old vines (planted from 1913 to 1995) of Mencía, Garnacha, Brancellao and Mouratón. New plots are being planted using cuttings from these old vines so as to maintain clonal diversity in the vineyard. The sites vary greatly based on the orientation of the plots and the soil types. Because this is a transition zone which touches Valdeorras, soils of slate, granite and clay are interspersed among the hillsides.
