Adega do Demo is the project started by Laura Rodríguez and Carlos Lorenzo in 2005. They grow Treixadura, Loureira, Godello and Brancellao in the Ribeiro region, in the rural village of Alongos, Spain.

Laura and Carlos farm on four hectares of granite and clay soil vineyards, at medium and high altitude, and follow an organic approach. They focus on caring for the soil and its microbiology, considering it essential to achieve healthy and resistant plants.

In 2017 they started to vinify grapes instead of selling the fruit to other wineries, and made 1,300 bottles of Bitoku (Treixadura, Loureira) and other wines in a friends’ cellar.
2018 saw the first vintage made in their own winery, Bodega da Lonia, which was originally built in the 19th century.


Treixadura and Godello vines are planted on schist soil, whilst Albariño and Loureira are grown on clay and decomposed granitic soil. 

The grapes are hand picked, de-stemmed and directly pressed. Co-fermented in stainless steel tanks with natural yeast. After fermentation, the wine was racked once and kept still with its fine lees until April 2021. Fined and filtered before bottling.

Batela is a traditional boat used for fishing and transport on Miño river. Carlos' grandparent Moises used this boat to cross the river and with his brother climbed up to the mountains to make devil noise to scare people in the village at night.
