Boca do Monte Logo

Boca do Monte, meaning mouth of the mountain, is named after a tunnel carved by the Romans in the 2nd Century to divert the River Sil, in their quest for gold. This feat of engineering is similar to the grape growers in Valdeorras, who plant their vines along the banks of the river.

Rafael de Haan is the young winemaker behind this label. Raised in England and half Spanish by birth, he returned to Spain after working for a wine merchant in England for several years and is now busy making wines in some of Spain's most up and coming regions.
