Notes from Jose Pastor Selections:

"Laura Lorenzo was the winemaker and viticulturist at 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 small plots of old vines organically in the Val do Bibei-Quiroga subzone of Ribeira Sacra, in Valdeorras, and in Arribes del Duero. 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 minimal sulphur.

Portela do Vento is a blend of 80% Palomino with the remaining blend comprised of Doña Blanca, Colgadeira, and Godello."
