Twenty wineries compete to get one of the awards of the Fair of Wine of Valdeorras, whose assessment started yesterday with the pretasting and have carried on throughout the morning.
It will be at night, during a dinner held at the fairgrounds O Aguillón of A Rúa, when we'll know the name of the 3 white wines out of the 22 presented and of the 3 reds out of the 26 that are in the contest, that will be given one of the hope awards, which are beneath the official recognition of the Ministry for Rural Affairs.
Winemakers in the area, members of the Galician Association of Sommeliers and even an American specialist are involved in the assessment of the wines. The yesterday's pretasting was useful to stand out some trademarks and keep a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 10 per category. In addition, there will be a special mention to the harvest of a unique winery of the place.
To get an award it's bound that the wineries turn up at the Fair that will kick off tomorrow and furthermore that they have 1.000 liters with 500 bottles in stock stored, and all them ready to be sold.
This act, used as a point of exhibition, opens to the public tomorrow (August the13th at 12:00 am), and will feature 23 of the leading wineries of the DO Valdeorras
