The Virgen del Galir winery is located in Éntoma, a small village in Orense, Galicia, in the northwest of Spain. It has been part of the CVNE family since 2018. The Galir Valley falls under the Valdeorras DO (designation of origin). The winery’s philosophy is to make wines that reflect the values of the land while respecting local traditions. This begins with the winery’s name, a tribute to Our Lady of Galir, the protector of the region’s vineyards. The history of wine growing in Valdeorras dates back to the Roman times, where there are references in Latin texts made to grape vines planted in the region along the river Sil. The name itself means "Valley of Gold." The region was given DO status in 1945.

“Grapes used for Pagos del Galir Godello are a selection from our vineyards in Entoma, Regueiron y O Serro. Soils in these high altitude vineyards with a 30% of inclination are mostly slate. A dry summer has provided a full maturation of the grape causing a fresh and aromatic harvest, probably one of the best of the last 10 years. Lemon color, clean and shiny. Intense nose, white fruit, bush, stones. Fresh in the mouth, silky, elegant, balanced, fresh.”-Virgen del Galir “Floral and pretty on the nose, with an enticing note of ripe apricot layered with the snappy tang of salty mineral on the lightly fleshy, mouthwatering palate. Shows hints of almond skin and citrus on the finish. Drink now. 2,900 cases made, 400 cases imported.”—Wine Spectator, 89 points!

Enjoy Virgen del Galir Godello Pagos del Galir with grilled shrimp, baked swordfish, roast chicken, tapas and light summer fare.
