.The prestigious "Guía Peñín", made by the wine critic Luis Peñín, elevates the "Pedrouzos Valdeorras Godello 2008" as the best Galician white wine and the second best in Spain.
Once more, a Valdeorras Godello shines with its own light in the international wine scene. If only a month ago the noted American critic Stephen Tanzer gave to the wines of the cellars Valdesil scores that exceeded ninety points, is now Luis Peñín who soars to a new godello deValdesil, Pedrouzos 2008, with a score of 96 points of 100.
To this wine has been joined Pezas da Portela, also from the 2008 harvest, reaching 94 scores out of 100. In this way it's confirmed the great harvest for the winery owned by the DO Valdeorras in 2008, that continues to collect major awards within or beyond our borders.
The good time of the winery is evident with the foresight of expanding their plantations of the godello grape variety to meet the expected sales of its white wines of high quality.
In the last three years, the Galician winery has planted 15 hectares of Godello and is planning to add 25 more, so its annual production could evolve from the 200,000 bottles, that normally obtains in a normal year, to the 500,000 bottles that have been predicted to get the medium-term.
These new plantings will be added to the 30ha of own vineyards and to the 58ha controlled, which are the property of local winegrowers, mainly of the white variety godello and the rest of Mencia for the red wines.
Galicia sells 35% of its production overseas, and now wants to set up in new markets such as the Swedish, the Russian, the Mexican or the Chinese. And due to its expanding purpose, there's been a significantly increase of its workforce.
