Operating outside of the D.O (Ribeira Sacra), Xavi Soeanes makes wine the way he wants to. Working biodynamically farmed vineyards on a terraced cliff overlooking the Miño just south of where it becomes the Sil.

Xavi has begun grafting Mencia to indigenous varietals such as Brancellao and Merenzao (which is also known as Bastardo in Spain and Trousseau in Jura). Xavi picks early, as was common practice several generations ago before acidification became more normal in the region. In 2018 Xavi began to use granite tanks in an effort to further replicate the winemaking practices before the region modernised using oak barrels

Xavi’s wines truly reflect the terroir of Ribeira Sacra and show how the future of winemaking in the region is in fact the past.


Godello, Loureira and Dona Branca vines grow on granitic and sandy soil with pockets of schist, east/southeast facing.

Hand harvested in 18kg boxes, the grapes are destemmed and fermented on their lees. Malolactic fermentation and ageing for 8 months on lees in 500l barrels. The wine is filtered before bottling.
