In the North West of Spain, next to Parada de Sil, is the family-run winery Ronsel do Sil. On granitic terraces originally constructed by the Romans and locally referred to as 'bancales,' the vineyard is manually farmed on the steep slopes of the Sil River Canyons.
Only 5% of mountain viticulture is still practised today; in Ribeira Sacra, this practice is referred to as 'Heroic Viticulture' because of the risky harvest it requires.
Along with the indigenous white types of Godello, Treixadura, and Dona Branca, indigenous red cultivars like Menca and Merenzao are farmed by Ronsel do Sil Wines responsibly.
