Bodega Viña Mein

 
Viña Meín is a large country mansion, like the traditional Galician "pazos", which is located at the heart of the wine growing region of Ribeiro (San Clodio-Leiro, 35 Km. from Orense). Its plantation (12 hectares) of vineyard which grows, exclusively, white autoctonous species (Treixadura, Godello, Loureira, Torrontés and Albariño) and a cellar in which the state of the art technology is to be found inside an old reformed country house in the middle of the Meín plantation, which also provides an unbeatable meeting place for those who love rural tourism. Here they will be able to dedicate their time to enjoying the good food, relaxed chats and, generally, taking it easy. To recover the old tradition was the objective which Viña Meín undertook in 1988, to become similar to those which had, in the past, given international recognition to the Ribeiro name. The brand of wine they make is called Casal de Meín; based, predominantly, on the Treixadura grape (more or less 60 percent), the Viña Meín wines have a fine yet intense aroma and are highly flavored and balanced to the palate, with a silky texture and an elegant, full, solid finish together with a characteristic bitter touch to it.Other noticeable features are the enormous covered balcony which overlooks the vineyards and the lookout at the top of the huge rock that towers over the house.
