Valdesil pays homage to the River Sil, the backbone of Galicia, which forms a narrow valley as it flows through Valdeorras. A pioneering and revolutionary wine in Spain, the first white wine to be aged on its lees in steel tanks. It is made exclusively with grapes from vineyards owned by the Prada-Gayoso family, located on schist rock, located in the parishes of Portela (San Xulián) and Córgomo (Santa Marta), in the municipality of Vilamartín de Valdeorras. The vineyards are managed according to the rhythm of the plants and a vegetative cover is maintained throughout the year, guaranteeing a living soil without erosion.

The Valdesil Godello Asadoira Sobre Lias is a 100% Godello of a single vineyard of less than 3.93HA located on schist soil in the place of the same name on the slopes of the Sil valley in Valdeorras. The wine is only made in top years and the 2022 is the 4th edition of this wine and is the successor to the 2020. Only around 900 bottles are made.

This is elegance with a capital E. The Asadoira shows the characteristics of the slate soils with its delicate citrus and mineral notes, very elegant, followed by aromas of delicate stone fruit, interspersed with spicy notes of fennel and notes of aging on the fine yeast. In the mouth it shows an extraordinary balance, with a medium to high body, unctuous and an excellent structure based on its acidity and its powerful minerality. a wine that can age beautifully.

Vineyard for 2022 Valdesil Asadoira Monopolio Sobre Lias

Gold was once mined in the Galician region of Valdeorras, the 'golden' valley, but today it is wine. In particular white wine from a special grape, godello and red wine from the grape Mencia. The variety grows on slopes and on plateaus around the river Sil and has been successfully transformed into fine wines. The Valdesil family domain is one of the most prominent houses that sources its grapes from all kinds of small plots, partly granite-containing, partly sandy, partly with slate. The sticks are often very old (top). Val De Sil has made the Godello and Mencia wines from the Valley de Sil famous.

Bodegas Valdesil is located in Vilamartín de Valdeorras in the deep west of Spain, approximately 180 km southeast of Santiago de Compostela. The history of the winery begins in the year 1885, when the winegrower José Ramón Gayoso began planting godello grape vines on the slate slopes of the Sil valley. Everyone made fun of him at the time. Although Gayoso later gave up the vineyard, the plants survived, and today the same genetic material is still used here. The modern history of the winery starts in 1991. In that year the Prada-Gayoso family brings the vineyards back in top condition. Today the winery covers 20 ha. Of these, many are small plots of old godello plants. Some vineyards are located at the best spots of Valdeorras, especially on the sunny slopes at Córgomo and Portel. The red grape variety mencía is also grown here. A total of six wines are made from both grape varieties. Bodegas Valdesil is one of the most reliable producers in Galicia, "a very reliable source for quality wines from Valdeorras", says Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
