NOTES FROM THE PRODUCER:
HEROIC VITICULTURE
Viticulture in the Ribeira Sacra is classified as Heroic Viticulture . The term refers to ground conditions that complicate the work with the vines from the terraces and that create a space that prevents mechanization . With the exception of specific lanes in some vineyards to move boxes in harvest, all the work is done by hand.
Only 5% of the area dedicated to viticulture in Europe has been recognized as this type of vine cultivation that share some common traits : they are on land with more than 30% slope and the vines are grown on terraces .
Since 2011, CERVIM has had a specific seal that defines this type of viticulture and that in Spain it can only use one Denomination of Origin: that of the Ribeira Sacra .
PHILOSOPHY
Surrounded by vineyards Javier Fernández González wanted to return to his roots and show that in the lands of the Ribeira Sacra – an area in which the harvest is one of the most complicated to carry out for its vineyards hanging from the mountains on terraces at a respectable height the best broths could be made. Saiñas is the result; the fruit of passion in winemaking , caring for the vineyards themselves and a careful harvest and production of musts .
OUR WINES
In 1992, it was the first time that Javier produced a wine under the Saíñas brand , a wine prior to the establishment of the DO Ribeira Sacra made with Mencía , the native red grape of Galicia . Since then it has been reaping successes; He was awarded numerous times both nationally and internationally. Later we created a second brand; Javier Fernández , who has also received several awards.
Since 2018 we have opened a new line of wines with the collaboration of Pablo Soldavini that will surely be very successful shortly.
CELLAR
Our winery is located about 300 meters high in the heart of the Ribeira Sacra in Espasantes (Pantón) , on the banks of the Cabe river (a tributary of the Sil) in the Ribeiras do Miño sub-area where the microclimate and the properties of granitic soils almost sandy, they bring a freshness to the Mencía that differentiate it from the standard of Ribeira Sacra wines.
