Valdeorras Wine Region Guide

Discover the Essence of Valdeorras: Uncork the Flavors, Unveil the Heritage


Last updated: January 4, 2024


Valdeorras is a region that shocks and delights oenophiles in equal measure. After decades of being shrouded in obscurity (Valdeorras was once heavily planted with the totally unsuitable Palomino), the region is quickly earning a reputation as one of Spain’s most exciting places to search for quality white wine. Its star grape variety, Godello, produces full-bodied and complex whites occasionally compared to the best of Puligny-Montrachet by critics like Jancis Robinson MW – high praise indeed! Meanwhile, the small but growing volume of floral and crunchy Mencia reds has won over some of the world’s most influential sommeliers and wine buyers. Today, Valdeorras is the talk of the town. It may be smaller than Rias Baixas, but its international clout is equally potent.
