Adega do Demo is owned and run by Laura Rodriguez and Carlos Lorenzo, who have been looking after his family vineyards since 2005. Their aim is to produce quality wine based on the traditional viticulture and winemaking method of Ribeiro area (Ourense, Galicia). Their vineyards are located in Alongos and they used to sell all their grapes to other wineries until they decided to make their own wines. All vineyards are farmed organically. Laura and Carlos’s aim is to produce wines with a clear concept and personality. They use traditional grape types of the area and use traditional winemaking methods. They made the first vintage in one of their friends’ cellars in 2017, which they call “year zero”. They produced the cuvée Bitoku (Treixadura + Loureira), which is the more typical regional wine with DO Ribeiro status, and 2 bottlings of their experimental wines labeled Piotr K. This concept wine is inspired by the agricultural anarchy theory of Piotr Kropotkin, “free from central government and based on voluntary associations of self-governing communities and worker-run enterprises.” Every year this wine will be different. Carlos says, “I think that is what we need in Galicia. People have been suffering from poverty and attached to the land. They used to be “coleteiros", who grows grapes and sell them off. Their life has always been influenced by nature, the price of grapes and poverty.”
