Bodega y Viñedos Hija de Anibal is located in Otero in the province of Leon. This new wine project in Bierzo was born from nostalgia, emotion and homage, but also from the symbiosis of an invaluable viticultural legacy and oenological wisdom in shared contributions.
Aníbal de Otero uses only Mencía grapes for production of their wines. The vineyards are in a beautiful location with a lot of historical significance. From the vineyard you can see the Roman gold mines of Las Medulas, UNESCO World Heritage, the Roman Castro Bergidum and other historical sites of Bierzo. The vines they grow the grapes in are more than a hundred years old. Some of them are even survivors from the phylloxera epidemic, which killed most of the vineyards in Europe at the end of the XIXth century. Their survival was possible thanks to the privileged conditions of our vineyards. This is very unique, and leads to very special wines with exclusive flavor matched by none. They take extreme care of the vines and this reflects on the final product. They do not have their own winery but are in a process of building one. They however do have a 400-year-old house, that they use for storage and wine tasting. The old vines produce very low yields of grapes. Due to this, and the uniqueness of the way they produce their wine, their total wine production is quite low.
They welcome anyone who wants to visit and see their processes up close and are happy to entertain them. The guests can also take part in various activities like harvest and help in the process of making wines. This is quite a unique project and if you are planning to travel in the area, you should definitely have Bodega y Viñedos Hija de Anibal in the list.
