THE UNION OF THE CAIÑO LONGO, MENCÍA, BRACELLAO AND SOUSÓN GRAPES TOGETHER WITH CAREFUL FERMENTATION IN STEEL WITH AFTER REARING IN FRENCH OAK BARRELS, MAKES THIS WINE UNIQUE

Attachment to a land, little secrets that are taught generation after generation, years of effort, dedication and sacrifice are combined with the most modern oenological techniques, with the final purpose of pulling out the maximum potential of each one of the grape varietals cultivated.

Cunqueiro El Primero is a limited edition of 1,000 numbered bottles, made with a selection of the best red varieties of the Ribeiro region that have been cultivated for several centuries.

MAIS DE CUNQUEIRO TORRONTÉS

A UNIQUE TORRONTÉS FROM RIBEIRO

It means the definitive recognition of the Torrontés varietal as one of the best and more versatile white varietals of Ribeiro. We choose carefully the best bunches from our vineyard “A Erbedeira”, where the soil and climate give unique characteristics to this varietal.

The cold cryomaceration with carbonic snow and the subsequent aging into its own lees between two and four months give it smoothness and volume in the mouth.

MAIS DE CUNQUEIRO GODELLO

A GODELLO FROM RIBEIRO

We made a rigorous selection of the best bunches of Godello from our farm to “A Erbedeira”, where land and climate confer unique characteristics to this grape variety. Later we elaborate in a traditional way, thus obtaining a unique wine that will surprise your senses.

YEAR BY YEAR PAMPERING OUR GRAPES

The care and love with which we handle our grapes, taught generation after generation, make possible to extract the maximum quality out of them, something essential in the making of our Cunqueiro Tercer Milenium, whose name refers to the first day of its first vintage, which coincided with the change of millenium.

TERCER MILENIUM

The result of the rigorous selection of the best bunches of Treixadura, Godello, Albariño and Loureira, subjected to a careful process of preparation by cryomaceration with carbonic snow and then the ageing into their own lees between one and three months, guarantee the varietal purity and the traditional essence of Ribeiro wines.

SINCE 1920. ALMOST A CENTURY OF HISTORY

CUNQUEIRO WHITE

Our story begins in the 20’s when Mr. Severino Fernández, alias “O Cunqueiro”, renowned local grape wine owner, elaborated wines in a traditional way in order to supply the numerous taverns of Ourense city, where he earned his fame thanks to the high-quality of his wines.

This wine is born as a tribute to our founder Mr. Severino Fernández and portrays values such as the tradition, know-how and passion that were taught generation after generation, through a hundred years of our story.

THE SECRET IS OUR LAND, WHERE THE ART OF WINE PRODUCTION BEGINS

CUQUEIRA

“A Cuqueira” is one of the oldest wine-growing areas of Ribeiro. In this environment and with a micro-climate especially appropriated for grape-growing, extraordinary wines have been made since immemorial times.

“A Cuqueira” has a lot to do with the Ribeiro, its wines and people. Cuqueira knows how to combine the classic and the modern in its same essence. This wine transmits the story of the soil from where it comes.

A combination of Palomino and Torrontés varietals creates a wine that will surprise us by the unexpected lines of its character.

A pazo is a type of Galician traditional manor house, normally located in the countryside. It used to be the residence of important people of the community (former kings or nobles).

Those people had a crucial role from the XVII century to the XIX because they were the owners of the largest vineyards of the area. These pazos were, at their time, an important part of the evolution of the Ribeiro wine sector.

WE HAVE INHERITED TRADITION AND CULTURE, BUT WE HAVE ALSO CONQUERED OUR PRESENT WITH A LOT OF PASSION, ART AND INNOVATION.

The elaboration of our wines can be defined as a perfect harmony between tradition and modernity. Attachment to a land, little secrets that are taught generation after generation, years of effort, dedication and sacrifice are combined with the most modern oenological techniques.

ANCIÑO RED

IN AN ARTISANAL WAY. With the artisanal winemaking we benefit from the ancient knowledge, the tradition and the inheritance of the past, which allow us to elaborate complex wines, with character and loyal to our own style.

The outcome of the combination of Garnacha and Mencía and a traditional elaboration is a fresh and fruity wine that makes us enjoy its character.

ANCIÑO WHITE

WITH PASSION AND TRADITION. The “Anciño” or Angazo is a tool that it was used to pull out the orujo (residue of the grapes) from the wooden barrels once the alcoholic fermentation was finished. It was also used for many other labors in the field.

The combination of Palomino and Torrontés varietals creates a wine that will surprise us by the unexpected lines of its character.

D.O RIBEIRO, THE OLDEST OF GALICIA AND ONE OF THE MOST HISTORICAL TRADITION IN SPAIN

Por su situación privilegiada, el Ribeiro se ve favorecido por barreras naturales que protegen el territorio de borrascas sub-atlánticas y proporcionan un clima oceánico-mediterráneo con temperaturas templadas que propician las circunstancias idóneas para el cultivo de la vid. Por ello, en estas tierras de origen granítico se elaboran unos de los mejores vinos blancos de España.
