Our current Winery is built on what once was the building where elaborated and our ancestors sold the wine. This stage begins in 2002, when we proceeded to an enlargement and reform, providing it with the most modern technology, thus giving way to our current Winery, Sameirás.

Due to the inherited tradition we try to keep in mind the more traditional production systems and learned from our ancestors, who have borne us respect the environment in which our vineyards are located, but always having the advances that today are developed for oenology, thus maintaining a link between origin, tradition and quality, fundamental pillars in the development of all of our wines.

For this we have the invaluable experience and know-how make our winemaker, Alvaro Bueno.


O Ribeiro

The region of O Ribeiro:

The region of O Ribeiro is located in the middle of the river Miño and owes its name to the wine “Ribeiro.”

Surrounded by mountainous terrain and sheltered from the oceanic influence, the cultivation of the vine is the dominant feature of the landscape, occupying almost all the slopes, as well as better targeted and sunny slopes of the surrounding municipalities.

In 1932 “O Ribeiro” was recognized as “Appellation of Origin.” The Control Board was created in 1956 by ministerial order.



D.O. Ribeiro

The Denomination of Origin Ribeiro is located in South Galicia, the northwestern edge of the province of Orense, in the confluence of the valleys formed by the rivers Miño, Avia, and Barbantiño Arnoia. Has an area of 2685 hectares of vineyard.

The vineyard extends from 75 to 400 meters high in valleys and hillsides, sometimes steep slope that is saved by terraces or bocaribeiras socalcos called to follow the contours.






The unique atmosphere is enhanced by natural barriers and the situation in southern Galicia, which protect the territory of storms subatlantic ecoclima provide transitional oceanic-Mediterranean making it wet and average temperatures of 14.5 º on average annually . Features between the oceanic and Mediterranean climate allows the fruit of the vines to mature, retaining flavor and acidity.

With an average of 950 mm pluvimetría, but with features that expresses Mediterranean tendency to have at least three months in which rainfall in mm is less than twice the corresponding monthly average temperature.


Have an average depth between 70 and 100 cm and are mostly of granitic origin with a significant presence of stones and gravel that improve the macrostructure of the soil and sunshine of the bunch.

The dominant textures are sandy loam, and less sand-French but you can also find free textures of alluvial sediments and finer textures of metamorphic rocks.

The organic matter content ranging between 2 and 4% for the topsoil and are usually below 3% in the subsoil.

From the standpoint of physical and chemical soil acidification tend to normally corrected by the winemakers.


The average production of the PDO is 14 million kg. white grape and 2 million kg. red grape that is made by 115 wineries, of which 84 are welcome to the figure of “Winery of Colleiteiro” (made from grapes from his property, not being able to buy grapes and not to exceed a maximum production of 60,000 L)
