Ernesto Rodriguez

Ernesto Rodriguez is a Catholic priest who has been working in the family vineyards since he was a child. Crego e Monaguillo, which, in Gallician means 'priest and altar boy', is owned and operated by Ernesto and his nephew, also called Ernesto. They are one of the smallest producers in Spain, but have gained a fantastic reputation thanks to a combination of excellent soils and careful work in the vineyard.

 

Crego e Monaguillo is made with Godello (85%) and Treixadura (15%), both indigenous grapes not really seen outside the area. Monterrei Appellation is characterized by having a mild Mediterranean climate with a continental trend, influenced by the Atlantic Ocean.

 

For this reason, Monterrei has a special microclimate of hot, dry summers and cold winters, providing considerable fluctuations in temperature of up to 30 degrees during the ripening season. The evidence of this is in the wonderful, ripe and richly aromatic nose of this wine.

Crego e Monaguillo

The vines grow on the sides of the valleys around the river Tâmega. The main town is Verín. The vineyards are at an altitude that varies between 400 and 450 m above sea level. The fertile, clayey soils, humid climate, high vine density and the yield of the local grape varieties means that wine production is high
