Bodegas Nairoa

Ribeiro is a Spanish wine region located in the north-west of Galicia, producing mostly white wines from several different local grapes (albariño, godello, torrontes and loureira, for example); but by far the most important is treixadura.

So it is with Bodegas Nairoa in Arnoia, who have extensive plantings of treixadura alongside several other local varieties like godello, albariño and lado, planted on sunny slopes at around 400 metres above sea level.

The influence of the Atlantic is felt strongly here, preserving freshness in the fruit in conjunction with the altitude. Oenologist Serafin Medina looks for low yields from the 24 hectares of predominantly granite soils, rigorously selecting the fruit at harvest and vinifying in stainless steel in the bodega’s modern winery to ensure that the character of the fruit is as pure as possible.

The bodega was established in 1999 on the banks of the Arnoia river and centres on a traditional Galician manor house that once belonged to Camilo Alberte, a small but quality conscious grower in the area. When he passed away his neighbours got together to buy the land and continued making wines with a local accent using the latest technical know-how.
