Guardians of tradition
At Dominio de Tares, we consider ourselves heirs to an ancient legacy that it is our duty to protect and perpetuate. A legacy with names such as Mencía, Godello and Prieto Picudo, which, cultivated in small traditional vineyard plots, full of history and impossible to mechanise, were fostered by the Roman settlers in the area more than 2000 years ago. Later they were perfected by the Order of Cistercians and the enriching cultural exchanges offered by the Camino de Santiago.
This heritage has been at serious risk of extinction since the event of industrialisation in the 19th century, and we are currently putting all our efforts into rescuing and protecting this legacy of old vines and the sustainable relationship with the natural and social environment, in order to guarantee its continuity and transmission to future generations.
