Vi Lof, Mencia

Hand harvested and then aged in oak barrels for 12 months. This is a brilliant, fresh red wine and a great example of the Mencia grape. Known as the Spanish Pinot Noir, it’s a difficult wine to harvest but it has been done expertly well here.

In a unique enclave of Valtuille de Abajo in the Biers Region, The López & Folgueral family project has begun. This story began four decades ago before Samuel Lopez & Adela Folgueral took over the running of the family vineyards. It used to serve as the family livelihood of the ancestors who sold grapes and wine in bulk to small costumers in the local area. In 2013 Héctor and Víctor decided to restore the old winery, in which the grandfather elaborated the wines many years before, where they could start winemaking their own family brands. In the same year, the plot called “La Fontiña de Nai” was elaborated as a private project. These first vintages were only for private tasting and were not released for sale. During the next three years the refurbishment of the winery along with part of the family house was finished and then equipped with the first steel tanks and French oak barrels where the first vintages were laid down to age. They’re now making top top quality wines with old vineyards and grapes that have been underused in Spain for decades.
