Valdesil is a family-owned winery and its success has resulted in Valdeorras wines being on the wine lists of some of the best restaurants in the world.
Valdesil make wines that mirror the nature of the Valdeorras region, with its characteristic slate soils, and reflect the care lavished on its vines, seeking to achieve wines that display depth and complexity and an ability to thrill wine enthusiasts.
The Godellos of Valdeorras are acknowledged as probably the top white wines of Galicia. Located in the interior of Galicia to the east of Ourense, the Godello white grape variety has found in this small appellation the perfect conditions for white wine, offering wines that are superb on the palate and with great potential to improve in bottle over time. The slate soils and the favourable latitude and altitude, combined with the special climatic conditions of the valley of the River Sil, make this area the ideal place for the Godello to express all of its great potential.
The region has also traditionally grown the Mencia red variety. In this cool climate, Mencia red wines develop a very characteristic subtle flavour.
Visits to the winery are possible with guided vsits to its old 19th century vineyard, a tour of the winery, conducted tastings and lunch in the 17th century Casa Gayoso.
