LA PERDIDA NATURAL WINES
La Perdida by Nacho Gonzalez
Winemaker, Nacho Gonzalez, has some of the most progressive views on natural winemaking in all of Galicia, Spain. Nacho brought a vineyard back to life from neglect once his grandmother passed it on to him. The vineyard now produces some of the most interesting red wines in all of Spain and is in great condition after Nacho's care.
Nacho works with total 4 hectares, but for context this produces just 12,000 bottles a year. These vineyards are surreal - most were planted between 1940-1960, soil types are mostly granite, with some clay, most of the vines are still untrellised (i.e. bush vines/staked vines), most of his vines yield around 2kg per vine and the majority of the plots are co-planted white & red field blends of interesting indigenous varieties like; Doña Branco, Godello, Garnacha Tintorera (Grenache x Petit Bouschet), Sumoll... even a little Palomino too.
