Vi LOF Mencia, Spain
Over the past couple of years we have started understanding more about the Mencia grape. As Pinot Noir lovers we think grown in the right way this grape has a very bright future ahead of it and the Vi LOF in our opinion shows exactly why.
Vinos Lof was born out of a desire to turn the old family vineyards into something special. Throughout five generations the family had acquired various plots throughout Bierzo, growing grapes that were traditionally sold to cooperatives. In 2013 Hector and Victor (5th generation) transformed an old winery and started creating wines that represent the local terroir of Bierzo.
They practice organic, biodynamic and low intervention winemaking. Sourced entirely from family vineyards and from 80 year old Mencia Vines from two separate plots in the area of Valtuille de Abajo.
