Our winery

Ronsel do Sil, S.L. is a company founded in 2010. "Ronsel "means stela, a furrow left by the boat when it is sailing on water.

In this case Ronsel do Sil aims to leave its mark of passion and respect for the Sustainable Landscape and Wine Culture in the Ribeira Sacra.

It is a small winery rehabilitated from an old wine press, whose philosophy is based on extolling the native varieties through careful craftsmanship.

Our vineyards

The objective of Ronsel do Sil is the making of high quality wines inside the Denominacion de Origen Ribeira Sacra. With this aim, cultivates two hectares of vineyards, part owned by us and part leased to local viticulturists. The totality of the land is harvested by hand in the steep bancales (old terraces built by the ancient Romans), characteristic of Ribeira Sacra.

The varietals cultivated are: Mencía and Merenzao (red grapes); and Godello, Treixadura, Dona Branca (white grapes), used to produce young wines, some of them with brief aging in American and French oak barrels.

Recently, a garden with plenty of different types of indigenous Galician varietals has been planted, located at the perimeter of our wine cellar on the banks of the Sil River.
