The vineyard covers 10 hectares, including espalier trained vines of 10 to 30 years and older vines of 35 to 100 years old- some of which are pre-phylloxera. The vineyard is cultivated sustainably following organic and biodynamic principles: manual weeding, using dried gorse as a cover-crop and mulching take place to preserve the soil natural humidity and nutrients. Pesticides and herbicides are not used. Irrigation is prohibited, so the vines are nourished by rainwater, underground sources and soil minerals, which lead to exceptionally long roots, up to 10 metres in length, producing concentrated and complex wines. 19 indigenous varietals are approved in the D.O. Ribera Sacra which grow side by side in the vineyard, thus the harvesting team needs to have great knowledge and experience to recognise each one, as they are harvested separately according to the D.O. regulations.

Ronsel do Sil is a family-run winery located in DO Ribeiro Sacra, near Parada de Sil, in the North West of Spain. The vineyard is manually cultivated on the steep slopes of the Sil River Canyons, on granitic terraces originally built by the Romans, which are known locally as ‘bancales'. Only 5% of mountain viticulture remains in the world, and in Ribeira Sacra it is known as ‘Heroic Viticulture’ due to the dangerous harvest entailed. Indigenous red varieties such as Mencía and Merenzao are sustainably grown
alongside the native white varieties of Godello, Treixadura and Dona Branca. Ronsel do Sil takes its name from the Spanish word ‘ronsel’ which means 'wake': the path a boat leaves when it sails through water. Winemaker Maria Jose Yravedra passionately crafts beautifully refined and mineral-driven wines.
