Virgin del Galir – Spain

The Virgen del Galir winery is located in the small town of Éntoma in Orense (Galicia) in a valley of the river Galir. Founded in 2002, the vines, planted in the slate, clay and granite soils so characteristic of the area, are arranged in terrace plots, more than 600 metres above sea level and at a gradient of 40%. This distinctive method of cultivation was inherited from the Romans, and the two indigenous grape varieties (Godello and Mencía) produce wines with a singular character.
