The Galician Ribeiro area is home to the 'Super Heroe' Xose Lois Sebio, a straightforward red wine that is the child of the Viño de Encostas project, aimed at obtaining bottles that fully express the identity of the area. The rows from which the grapes come are located on terraces in the Gomariz area, unique for their steep slopes and characteristic stone walls. The name and illustration of this label symbolize a maverick superhero fighting against standardized wines.

These are old vines, aged between 50 and 70 years, located between 150 and 350 meters above sea level and rooted on clay soils characterized by an abundance of slate. Alcoholic fermentation occurs in temperature-controlled open steel tanks, after which the mass is placed in 500-liter used oak barrels where it completes malolactic fermentation and remains to mature for 14 months.
