Because of the presentation made by the Regulatory Council of Valdeorras in SH Palace Hotel in Valencia, on last April 12 and in which there was record of influx, wines of 18 wineries attached to the DO of Valdeorras have become creditors of the highest qualifiers awarded by the specialized sector of the Spanish levantine capital.
Taking advantage of the international pull that the Galician wines of this DO have abroad, a fact that has resulted in an increase of 93% of the imports in 2011, the Regulatory Council of Valdeorras has shown its strong commitment to the national audience, in company of a large number of the region's wineries and being Valencia the city chosen to present the excellence of its wines.
Taking the witness of Barcelona and Madrid in Spain and of big cities like Dallas, Zurich or New York beyond our borders, once more both promoters and participants, as visitors and guests have agreed to call the presentation as a success.
This fact is reflected in the statements shared by the Regulatory Council and embodied by its technical manager, Jorge Mazaira, that offers us the following words: - We were very glad with the enthusiasm that the event raised and the public attending this. Furthermore, we were excited with the wide media coverage given to it. In turn, the participation of important technical groups from the Valencian Community have accompanied the presentation with words like "remarkable" and "excellent", reinforcing the image of the DO in the east of the peninsula -.
And Reinforcing the statements of George Mazaira, the Association of Sommeliers of Valencia (FASCV) remarked the following ratings: - The quality of the wines is amazing and excellent. The Godellos match perfectly with our cuisine and the Mencías, Garnacha and Sousones turn to be very interesting and a perfect complement to those most intense dishes-. This statements have resulted in the formal invitation of the Valencian sommeliers to the DO to participate in one of the most important wine fairs of Valencia, "The Great Wine Fair of Gandía 2012".
The presentation's valoration of the participating winemakers sector comes from the hand of Marta Sertaje, commercial director of Bodegas A Coroa. A Coroa is one of the wineries with more international awards for its 2010 vintage and has presented exclusively its new crop 2011 in Valencia. These are Marta's statements: - The act has been very successful. I was not expecting such an influx of people, but once started, and not very late, we only had to wait an hour to see the room crowded. The public had the opportunity to taste the wines that we made in Valdeorras and marveled at the quality of them. In my case, I brought the new vintage 2011, bottled for only 15 days than despite its youth, the audience liked both A Coroa 2011 and A Coroa Lias 2010. The public was also very professional in the sense that almost those who came to taste the wines were restaurant owners or staff working in them.-
After this presentation, the Regulatory Council of Valdeorras and a large number of wineries have already started to move their excellencies to the next promotional event to be held in London from 22 to 25 May.
