Laura Lorenzo was the winemaker and viticulturist at Domino do Bibei, an established Ribeira Sacra estate for close to a decade. In 2014, she struck out on her own with her project Daterra Viticultores, and now works about 4.5 hectares organically in the Val do Bibei-Quiroga subzone of Ribeira Sacra, and with this wine she extends her reach into Valdeorras to the southeast with the 2015 vintage. Through her meticulous work in the vineyard, Laura’s goal is to cultivate life in her soils that were once damaged by industrial viticulture, and to bring harmony to her vineyards and grapes. In the winery, Laura lets the grapes speak for themselves - fermenting with wild yeasts, utilizing older wooden casks for fermentation and elevage, and adding only small amounts of SO2 during the winemaking process, with no clarification, filtration, or adjustments to the wines.

Azos de Vila comes from many pueblos (Seoane, Soutipedre, Langullo, San Vicenzo) that are part of Manzaneda, where there are very old mixed plantings, with the oldest vines planted on their own rootstock. This village cuvée is a field blend of red varieties
