Ribeira Sacra is one of the most representative spaces of this type of viticulture.

CERVIM 2020 winners

Mondial des Vins Extrêmes, organized by CERVIM, is the most important oenological competition, reserved for wines produced in mountain regions or from extreme cultivation:altitude greater than 500 meters, slope of the land greater than 30% (in areas of the DO Ribeira Sacra reaches 80%) or viticultural systems of terrace cultivation. D.O. Ribeira Sacra is one of the world's greatest exponents of this type of viticulture, which today is known as heroic viticulture. From CRDORS we take the opportunity to convey our best wishes for this Christmas and for a 2021 that we hope will be exciting and continue to bring rewards for Ribeira Sacra.
