Toni Quiroga decided to start his adventure in wine 20 years ago, when he started to work in the lands that belonged to his father “el cubano” in Valtuille de Abajo. 22 hectares are the base of this family bodega. Love for his lands and his roots, and respect for the traditions and customs in the heart of El Bierzo region. The wines from Bodegas Cobertizo are produced complying with the organic production procedures and beyond, with extremely low sulfites, far lower than the European ecological standard limits. Viticulture is rational and sustainable, we obtain the maximum benefits that this lands provide us. In organic vineyards like ours, it is usual to leave a vegetal cover between strains to bring balance to the ground. In our reds we use old vines of Mencia (60 years) and in our white wines we use Godello (50 years). When vineyards are this old they can’t be manipulated with machines, everything is done manually.
