This is 100% Mencia grapes fermented with stems in whole bunches, a long but gentle maceration and ageing only in steel for a fresh & aromatic red wine perfect lightly chilled in summer.


Pablo Soldavini first got into winemaking through his quest to find out more about his ancestry and the land his family once farmed in Ribeira Sacra. In 2018 he teamed up with Javier Fernández González who wanted help running his winery Saiñas - 5 hectares of parcels of mainly Mencia vines in the heart of Ribeira Sacra. Pablo brought along his gentle winemaking style and respect for nature - after joining he started converting all the vineyards to organic agriculture, a slow process which is still ongoing.
