We are close to end the harvest, and the DO Valdeorras' grape harvest forecast is approaching 7 million kilograms, an increase of 63% compared to the previous campaign, accompanied by an excellent quality of the grapes.
The best omens are being fulfilled for the wine of quality from the DO Valdeorras that with an expanded production in quantity and excellent in quality, determine an historical harvest that that will certainly give a lot and very good to talk in the most demanding international wine sectors.
If the weather conditions have helped to achieve this success, now is the turn of the winemakers and processors to provide a bit of wisdom and good work to prepare the excellent wines.
The different "terroirs" that are in this guarantee of quality bind to the preferences of the winemakers when making the collection, either with a high or a low graduation or with more or less maturation, just to offer to those high qualified wines a diferent note and transform them as unique and distinct in their essence.
Still, the less positive side comes from the hand of the winemakers that, with a so high production, have been forced to decrease the price of grapes. "Palomino" and "Alicante" are very affected in this economic and productive dynamic, being relegated to a background for the quality of the local and traditional "Godello" and "Mencia".
