Among the world’s most ambitious, yet intimate wine estates (to which one arrives by boat), Finca Millara is the dream of Fernando de Santiago, who fell in love with the emerging, dramatic, and nearly inaccessible Ribeira Sacra wine district, a historically significant wine region that had been virtually abandoned. In 2000, he began purchasing parcels in the uninhabited hamlet of A Millara, overlooking the Mino, eventually acquiring the entire township and its surrounding slopes from hundreds of proprietary descendants. Reclaiming and restructuring the vineyard terraces A Millara itself – following strict guidelines to maintain original architecture – incorporated the modern winemaking and aging facility.
