He works mainly with the Mencia & Godello grape varieties making great wines of limited production, many of whom have been well received by critics.

Similarities often arose between his wines from this region to a high-quality French Burgundy Pinot Noir... But at a lot tastier a price point!
WHAT THE WINE MAKER SAYS
It has aromas of ripe redcurrant, blackberry, and memories of eucalyptus and blood orange. In the mouth it is an earthy wine, with a perfect assembly between the tannins of the fruit and the wood. It is a round wine that combines elegant lightness with a persistent finish of ripe fruit. Elegant and tasty.
