Characteristics of Valderroa

Valderroa is a young red wine made by Valdesil in the D.O. Valdeorras (Galicia) with the Mencía red variety.

Owned by the Prada family, Valdesil stands out for its deep Galician character. They cultivate small plots of old vines, they grow native varieties and they are a pioneering winery in their use of the Godello variety. This all means they produce concentrated wines with great personality and a marked mineral character.

The Valderroa wine comes from small estates cultivated by local winegrowers in the municipalities of Vilamartín, Rubiá, A Rúa and Petín. The vines are aged between 10 and 30 years old, planted mainly on slate slopes at 500 metres above sea level and facing different directions. They are harvested by hand and placed in 20 kg boxes.

The Valderroa grapes are quickly transported to the winery where they pass over the selection table and are prepared for winemaking. They ferment with native yeasts in open stainless steel tanks and daily pump overs for 15 days. The wine is then left there for 9 months with periodic racking.

Born on the banks of the Sil River, Valderroa is a fruity, intense and very fresh red wine. Authentic Atlantic Mencía that is easy to drink.
