Details

Bastion De La Luna Del Salnes Rias Baixas, natural wine, rare spanish grapes, red wine from Rias Baixas. A delicious red wine, fresh and minerally, produced from a blend of the ancient Spanish grape varieties of Mencia, Loureiro Tinto and Caino. The vines grow in very fast draining soil giving this delicious wine an abundance of freshness and minerality! The harvest is done manually and traditional wine making is still used, with little interventionist methods, allowing the vineyard to do the talking. Bastión de la Luna is then aged for about 12 months in old French oak barrels. A wine of amazing purity, fresh crunchy fruits, smooth supple texture, truly delicious, a great alternative to the oft boring Riojas!


A stone’s throw away from the Atlantic ocean located in Val do Salnés in the north of Rias Baixas, this bodega is owned by the Méndez family. The soil in his vineyards is granitic sand, covered with a layer of humus, over granite bedrock. It is very poor, fast draining soil that vines struggle in and phylloxera cannot live in, hence many of the vineyards are deceptively old, up
to 200 years! Even his joven Albariño comes from vines with an average age of 40 years. The recovery of century-old vineyards of indigenous red varieties, such as Caíño, Espadeiro and
Loureiro, in addition to the white Albariño from old vineyards, are the base of their wines and a clear reflection of the terroir: wines full of freshness, with a perfect minerality and ample sensations.
