Amizade is a collaboration between two friends, Gerardo Mendez of Do Ferreiro and Toni Mendez (no genetic relationship). Amizade is the name of the wine that they have created together, which is the Galician word for “Friendship.”

In addition to owning many of the most privileged vineyards in Monterrei, Toni is also the President of the Consejo Regulador of Monterrei. The vineyard that Toni selects his clones from is called Quinturras, whose vines are over a hundred years old. The vineyard provides the structure  for both wines, with the majority of the fruit coming from younger vineyard parcels (selection massale) grown in cooler sites.
