alter-shelved-wineAlter was founded by José Pérez Pousa on the banks of the Miño river in 2014, with the wish to preserve the tradition of their native land, where wine has been produced since the 2nd century BC. Alter has 24 hectares of its own vineyards, which are on average 15 to 30 years old and are planted on decomposed granite, with sand and clay. 90% of the production is from the native white varieties Treixadura, Godello and Loureira, with the rest from the native red varieties Brancellao and Sousón. The climate in Ribeiro is influenced by the Atlantic but also sheltered by the mountains. The region benefits from warm days and cool nights during the growing season, which allows the grapes to ripen fully while retaining their signature fresh acidity.
