D. Ventura, Ribeira Sacra, Spain


D. Ventura is a project by Ramón Losada and his family utilizing old family holdings in this ancient wine growing region. Ever since the Romans inhabited the area, people have been growing grapes on the steep terraces lining the two rivers that form the denomination. All farming is done by hand, and Ramón, with the help of Gerardo Méndez of Do Ferreiro, has changed the farming techniques to incorporate a more natural approach. Winemaking here has also undergone a transition to a more organic form. Only indigenous yeast is used to start fermentation. None of the wines are filtered or cold stabilized and the maturation of the grapes is watched carefully to ensure that they are fully mature when harvested.
