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.


Made with indigenous grapes of the Ribeiro region: Caiño Longo, Souson and Brancellao, grown in the granite sandy soil of “Eigon” plot (1ha) located in the Beade district of Avia valley. 

The weather in 2019 was perfect for red grapes. There was less rainfall than usual and dry and warm temperatures towards the end of maturation. 

De-stemmed and fermented in SST with temperature control (19C) for 18 days with light punching down. The juice is then separated from the skin and pressed. The wine and fine lees are moved into French oak barrels and aged for 10 months. Bottled without filtering, fining or addition of any chemical products.
