Overview

Sorte O Soro is the culmination of Rafa’s pioneering work in the Val do Bibei. Originating from a single 0.47 hectare plot of 40 year-old vines and farmed biodynamically, Sorte O Soro is the Les Clos or the Clos Ste Hune of Valdeorras. O Soro was the first vineyard Rafa acquired when he settled in Valdeorras as he immediately saw its potential. A natural yeast fermentation is followed by aging for 7 months in new 500 L French oak demi-muids. Luis Gutierrez when tasting the 2011 Sorte O Soro called it, “one of the most exciting whites currently produced in the country.”
