♦ Story of the Wine
This wine is a tribute to the Galician origins of David Seijas. His last name comes from the term Seixas, which in Portuguese means brave pigeon. Its coat of arms is represented by 5 silver pigeons on green background. The Ribeiro area is full of hot springs or “burgas” that spring (manar in Spanish) from the ground. This wine represents the Manar of the Seixas.
♦ Wine Paring Recommendation
Ourense is the famous home of the best octopus, and more specifically the town of Carballiño. If you visit the area, you cannot leave without tasting an octopus with a Ribeiro wine.
♦ Serving Tips
Our origins are linked to the job of a waiter. David Seijas grew up in his parents' village restaurant in Seva, where, at a very young age, he remembers carrying a wine opener in his pocket and pretending to be a sommelier.
If today you feel like putting on your sommelier's apron, the liturgy of the wine service recommends tasting it between 10 and 12°C, and we recommend a glass such as a Riedel Extreme Oaked Chardonnay. However, we will be very pleased if you enjoy it with what, when and however you choose
