An ancient 1000 m2 parish from the seventeenth century gives its name to the Rectoral de Amandi Winery, located at the heart of Amandi, in the province of Lugo.
It is a benchmark throughout the D.O. of Ribeira Sacra, not only for being the most important in volume, with more than 2 million bottles per year, but also for being directly responsible for the development of the D.O. beyond its borders, putting its name on the map across the world.
The Ribeira Sacra
The Ribeira Sacra is located on the banks of the Miño and Sil rivers in the south of the province of Lugo and north of the province of Ourense, which has more than 2000 years of history. The largest concentration of rural romantic in Europe is joined by a unique landscape, resulting from the cultivation of the vine in terraces or terraces, the inclination of which can reach 85%. This viticulture is called heroic viticulture.
The winemaking tradition dates back to Roman times, it was continued by the monks in the Middle Ages and survives to this day thanks to the work of more than 90 wineries in the D.O. Ribeira Sacra.
D.O Ribeira Sacra was founded in 1996 and is divided into five sub-areas: Amandi, Chantada, Quiroga-Bibei, Ribeiras do Miño and Ribeiras do Sil.
