Mencia is seeing something of a renaissance in Spain, specifically in the Bierzo, Ribeira Sacra, Monterrei and Valdeorras. Stylistically, it can vary from what was traditionally an aromatic and fruity red wine, and attractive rosé wines, to more intense, concentrated examples from low yielding vines, especially in Bierzo.

A Telleira

Castilla y León, Spain


Founded in 1940, Finca Reboreda is the producer behind the A Telleira wines, one of the largest private estates in the D.O. Ribeiro, also credited with being an innovator for quality in the area. 


“A Telleira” is a 40 hectare vineyard block named after its location near the former grounds of a traditional clay tile facility close to the Miño River. The soils vary, from alluvial and stony near the river, to outcroppings of slate, granite, and chalk on the higher west-facing slopes. 

The Godello is bright and concentrated, with pronounced minerality, displaying the potential of this indigenous grape in the right hands.
