Goyo comes from one of the most respected winemaking families in the Ribera del Duero.  Greatly inspired by natural winemakers, like Pierre Overnoy from the Jura, Goyo started to farm and produce his own naturally made wines in 2003.  

Accompanied by his wife Diana Semova Geogieva, he farms single plots in the heart of Ribera del Duero, near the town of Roa, almost all of them interplanted with small percentages of white grapes, on different soil types and altitudes. The idea is to come back to the past and let the vineyard –rather than each individual grape variety – fully express itself. To accomplish that he works with very old, traditionally head-pruned vines, harvests first for acidity, and then co-ferments red with white grapes together, as things were done in Ribera del Duero back in the good old days.
