Completing the information published on 16 May, we like to comunicate two more international awards for the winery DO Valdeorras Joaquin Rebolledo. This fact leads to a Silver Bacchus for red wine barrel 2010 and a Gold Medal at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, for the second consecutive year, for the Godello Joaquin Rebolledo 2011.
30 years ago the Rebolledo family led the way in the recovery of the grape Godello. Driven by Joaquín Rebolledo and his risk bet, today the winery has a vineyard of Godello vines with an average age of 30 years. Joaquín Rebolledo Godello was the first Galician wine to win the Golden Tendril (1993), sparking a dramatic legend about around Valdeorras, culminating culmitating this year with the second achievement of the gold medal at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles.
The potential of this variety, as well as the characteristic soil of Valdeorras, have brought the most distinguished Spanish Winemakers to produce wines in Valdeorras. Mencia is the quintessential red variety of the Northwest of the Iberian Peninsula.
Joaquin Rebolledo prestige in the red wines is very important and continues to gain first class awards. This is the rhythm of wines such as the Barrica and Mencia of Joaquin Rebolledo that set the standards.
The collection of wine barrels is sufficiently complex, so as to confer distinctiveness to Joaquín Rebolledo wines. French, American and Caucasican oak, are the predominant wooden barrels that fill the caverns of the winery. There, with specific humidity, temperature and silence, the reds take on a remarkable and distinctive expression.
