Discovering new wines is an adventure that wine lovers anticipate, enjoy and even DREAM about! What’s not to love as this journey includes experiences of meeting interesting people, finding great restaurants, and traveling to new places that all have their unique WINE favorites and special select menu’s for you to take your palate on its own journey. Whether it is red, or “vino tinto” as they say in Spain, rosado, or a crisp and refreshing “VINO BLANCO” white wine, your wine pilgrimage is sure to be a memorable one. Such was the case at this year’s Fórum Gastronómic Coruña ’14 where there were an amazing array of different wines to taste, savor and ENJOY!
Raül Prada Luengo of Bodega Valdesil stopped by the Bo Camiño TASTE IT! booth for a picture and a little chat about his delicious wines. Bodega Valdesil specializes in Godello white wine whose favorite habitat is on the the slate terraced hillsides of the valley with moderate temperature and humidity. Breathtaking views that add their own magic to the grapes as they grow and later their hidden mysteries of centuries of tradition are tasted. Here’s to continuing your Wine Adventure one Sip, one SAVOR at a time!!!
Bodega Valdesil Wines come from the region of Valdeorras – whose “Denominación de Origen” was established in 1957 and is the wine growing region on the easternmost fringes of Galicia, north-western Spain. This location has earned it the unofficial title of ‘Gateway to Galicia’. Valdeorras is situated between Ribeira Sacra, to the west and Bierzo which is part of Castilla y Leon to the east and northeast. The beautiful River Sil is the main feature of the region’s landscape with it’s picturesque vineyards planted on its valley floor.
