Louro is a blend of Godello with a small amount of Treixadura from parcels located in the villages of Chandoiro, Lentellais, Outardepregos and Santa Cruz. After decades of conventional farming, the organic practices of Rafa have begun to revitalize the soils of these site and Louro is becoming more complex with each vintage. Louro is fermented in French oak foudres and aged on its lees for four months.

Wine AdvocateI was blown away by the 2016 Louro, a Godello-based white with some 8% Treixadura from their own vineyards. It is from plants averaging 25 years of age panted at some 600 meters on sandy granite soils in the parish of O Bolo. It fermented in 3,000-liter French oak foudres with indigenous yeasts where it matured in contact with the fine lees for four months. 112,000 bottles were filled in April 2017.
