Collection: D.O. Valdeorras

Valdeorras is Galicia's most inland wine area. To the east it borders Bierzo, the westernmost wine region in Léon. The climate is therefore partly Atlantic and partly continental. It is a region where wine has been made since Roman times. Gold mining was originally its most important economic sector – Valdeorras means 'valley of gold' – but over the centuries viticulture grew in importance, in part under the influence of the monastic orders which played a major role in the cultivation of grapes and the production of wine, as was so often the case.

After a long, relatively 'quiet' period, more and better wines are made here today, mostly from Godello and to a lesser extent Mencia. Other grape varieties have recently started to make modest inroads: Garnacha Tintorera, Merenzao, Maria Ardona, Lado and even Riesling.
