The region's first carbonic maceration wine. Dating back to 1995, a dutch importer challenged Manuel Fariña to make a carbonic maceration wine to offer the market something different. Fariña took up the challenge and this is the result. Every year, the label carries the winning work of art from the Fariña Primero art competition. Take a look at the Art Competition section of this website.
