Overview

DO Arribes is a little-known appellation located on the extreme western edge of Spain along its border with Portugal. Here, near the village of Villadepera, Alvar de Dios works with several growers to make Camino de los Arrieros – his “Village” wine from Arribes. A blend of Rufete, Juan García, Trincadeira Preta, Bastardo and some other stray varieties mixed in the vineyards all planted on sandy red slate soils, Camino is harvested by hand, fermented whole cluster by indigenous yeasts in 1000L French oak vats with pigeage by foot.
