Tolo do Xisto - The River Sil and its Landscapes

DO Ribeira Sacra

A journey towards 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 meaning “mad about slate”, tries to define the effort involved and the love of 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.
