Formigo is a light, fresh and aromatic wine. Very fruity on the nose, flowery and easy drinking.
Manuel Formigo started to produce his own wines in the winery located in the basement of the old family house. Currently, he makes wine in the winery built next to the 4-hectare vineyard, Finca Teira, which became “bodega de colleteiro”.
Manuel only cultivates his own farms so that he can control the whole process. His vineyards are planted with local varieties, located mainly on granitic soils, loose and well oxygenated. The vines' ages range from 20 to 35-40 years.
The aim of Manuel is to cultivate in a sustainable way, respecting the environment and seeking the maximum expression of the local varieties, to create unique wines, capable of transmitting all the character of his farms, as well as their freshness, complexity, balance and elegance.
