FLC#12 - Diego Collarte / Cume do Avia
Diego and his brother, Álvaro, grew up in the metropolis of Vigo, in northwest Spain. City life wasn’t for them, so in 2005, they embarked on the restoration of their ancestors’ vineyards in an ancient Galician ruin. With no previous knowledge or experience in winegrowing or winemaking, the brothers set out on what many may have considered a mad endeavour. After a few years of experimentation, the brothers had wine they were ready to share. The wines come from 13 different indigenous varietals from ancient vines in the Ribeiro. They make over 20 different wines - all raw, honest and inspiring. The wines of Cume do Avia have a near religious following. It seems that nearly everyone who tries them goes on to wax esoteric about them – we may or may not be guilty of this as well.
