How to find us

General information

Ponte da Boga is a centenary winery situated in the municipality of Castro Caldelas, in the Ribeira Sacra of Ourense. Built in 1898 by a family from the area, the winery was extremely active until the 1960s when production ceased. It remained closed until 1999 when local vine growers decided to repair it and restart making wines in the traditional fashion, under the D.O Ribeira Sacra.

In 2005 Ponte da Boga became part of the Corporacion Hijos de Rivera, within the area of Corporate Investment, which allows the winery to face new challenges such as improving its market position and to turn all its wines into references for quality and true reflection of the enormous grape-growing potential encased in the amazing terraced slopes which follow the course of the Miño and Sil rivers.

Ponte da Boga produces Ponte da Boga Mencia, Ponte da Boga Blanco de Blancos, Capricho de Merenzao, Alais and Bancales Olvidados. In addition to these, there is a limited edition collection of wines: Ponte da Boga Expression Historica.
