Tolo do Xisto - The Sil River Canyon

DO Ribeira Sacra

A journey to the Atlantic. This joint winemaking project between winemaker Andrea Obenza and Coca i Fitó in the DO Ribeira Sacra began in 2013. The Galician name which christens this project means “mad about slate”, tries to define the effort involved and the love for the land which are much needed when making wines in this area. It is a spectacular landscape of river gorges along the river Sil, where vineyards cling to the slate.
