Description

D. Ventura is the soft-spoken Ramón Losada and his family, who farm 6ha of old vines to make small amounts of single-vineyard wine in one of the most remote wine regions in the world, Ribeira Sacra. Ramón is the picture of a humble farmer, with his full-time job as the village veterinarian consuming whatever time is left after tending to his vines. In 1999, he and his sister Belen refurbished the cellar in the ancient family farmhouse in Pantón (Galicia) and began bottling and selling their wines, which until then were for self-consumption.

Viña do Burato is in a totally different area on the Miño river, north of the other two plots present in the estate's holdings. Here the landscape is lush with a significantly cooler climate and higher average rainfall. Streams flow directly through the vineyard on their way to the Miño. The soils are mixed granitic and alluvial. Each plot’s unique climate creates a distinct wine. The vineyard is planted to Mencía and Merenzao (Trousseau) which yield crisp, refreshing red wines with mouthwatering acidity similar to the wines of Beaujolais or Alpine France.
