Overview

At Viana do Bolo, the main town of this backcountry part of Galicia, the Bibei abruptly turns east and flows towards the rugged border with Castilla. Along its meandering course are the tiny villages of Punxeiro and Santa Mariña de Froxais whose vineyards are at the very edge of viticulture in this part of Spain – the highest in elevation, the coldest and just a short trip to the border… as the crow flies at least. Peixes da Rocha is a blend that is quite similar to Estrada but from terraced sites at higher elevation and from sandy granite, mica and quartzite-rich soils.
