Vina Mein Ribeiro Tinto
Vina Mein
Spain - Galicia

Viña Meín’s commitment to the classic red varieties of Ribeiro – Brancellao, Caíño longo and Grenache – offers a journey through the Avia Valley and the history of the region. Heading upstream from the Toro plot adjacent to the winery¸ we find the Osebe and Ribeira plots tucked away in the corners of this terrain. These traditional red varieties thrive in the Avia Valley´s special micro-climate characterized by the Atlantic´s cooling influence and great diurnal temperature fluctuations during the summer months of the growing season. It is this unique landscape and climate that allows the revival of the historic Ribeiro style of wine that goes back to centuries.

On just 5 acres at 490 feet above sea-level, these terraced vineyards located on the western side of the Avia River grow in "Sábrego" soil comprised of decomposed granite, sand and clay that is unique to this region.

The wine is vibrant and lively, has a long mouthfeel with fresh and spicy notes and light, soft tannins. A genuine expression of the unique and elegant character of a Ribeiro red.
