Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Money or a glass of wine. Either of these two things is acceptable to those parading through the streets, dressed up for the Verín Carnival in Ourense (Galicia), and they will not leave you alone until they’ve got something. 

At least that’s the tradition. Now, these mysterious and magical figures have a wine named after them: Terras de Cigarrón, a white wine made from the Godello variety in this town (southeast of Galicia, very close to the Portuguese border), by the Terras do Cigarrón cooperative in the DO Monterrei.

Terras do Cigarrón was created by 20 winegrowers who joined forces and established a cooperative in 2002. The star of the project is the Godello variety, which grows in valleys and slopes at an altitude of 400 and 500 metres in sandy-loam soils and is bathed by the typical mild temperatures of the Atlantic climate. Terras do Cigarrón is made through fermentation and aging in stainless steel tanks.

Godello has always been the D.O. Monterrei’s most typical white variety. However, it has always been in the shadow of the Albariño, which is much better known. Comparisons never tell the whole story though. Now the tide is turning and the Godello and its aromas are much loved and sought-after. Terras do Cigarrón certainly has nothing to envy in Albariño.

The Monterrei Valley is often only considered for the cultivation of cereals, fruit trees and other horticultural products, but the Valley is today one of the most dynamic regions in terms of wine production. The transformation and improvement of viticulture and the installation of wineries such as Terra de Gargalo (owned by Roberto Verino), Pazos del Rey, Quinta do Muradella, Lobazán and Valdevellos, among others, have contributed to increased production of quality wines within designation of origin, which are becoming ever more present in the main Spanish markets.
