Bodegas O’Ventosela

Bodegas O8217Ventosela

The family firm of Bodegas O’Ventosela dates to 1980, when Juan Miguez Montero, tapping into the contacts and know-how acquired during his career as a restaurateur, decided to begin making his own wine. Operating out of a new gravity-fed winery in the hamlet of Leiro since 2006, Montero harvests traditional northwestern Iberian varieties (primarily Treixadura in white and Mencía in red) by hand in small crates to maintain the highest fruit quality possible. The majority of the crop is sourced from the estate vineyard of Finca Traveselas, but Montero also purchases fruit from small farmers in the area; soils are alluvial over a bedrock of granite. A harmonious marriage of quality, distinctive local character, and undeniable value, these wines are a compelling addition to our thriving Galician portfolio.
