Through the XV DO Valdeorras Wine Fair on 11 and 12 August, we offer a range of leisure, culture and nature, encouraging you to enjoy an unforgettable weekend in which the wine will be the main protagonist.
As we have been advancing in recent days, from the Mother of the Wine we propose you a different weekend to enjoy some of the most fashionable wines in the international wine scene, accompanied by an excellent range of leisure, culture and cuisine. You can choose just an incentive or take them all; Valdeorras is waiting for you.
Our first proposal is based on the rich local cuisine, a perfect complement to pair with the excellence that characterizes the Valdeorras wines, being these a source of inspiration for the gourmet vanguard culinary group most significant of Galicia, "Grupo Nove".
Valdeorras's cuisine focuses on natural and homemade products. Starting from the tasty meat dishes that you can enjoy in the excellent restaurants that characterize the land, the following are some samples that will surely delight you: kid goat with garlic, chicken or turkey stewed, foie micuit or, why not, a Valdeorras stew. Besides, you can also taste one of their most known regional dishes, the breaded cutlet pie, which is also a great incentive to amaze your palate in these special summer dates.
Seasonal vegetables are another major attraction of this land; in a region bathed by the Sil and Xarés rivers, garden produce such as peppers, zucchini, tomatoes or lettuce, provide incentives to complement the fine dining in Valdeorras.
Fish and Seafood complete the gastronomic offer we propose you, as we can not forget that we are in Galicia and the rich fruits of its coasts also emerge in the culinary art of Valdeorras; from mussels, clams, lobster rice, cod, hake, sea bass and monkfish prepared with Godello Valdeorras, it may be in the octopus (prepared in the Galician way) in which you can find your ideal companion for the regional wines, Godellos and Mencías.
And for the sweet-toothed, who we do not forget, you can also taste a wide selection of traditional desserts as: Fried milk, Milk Pudding, French Toast, Cracklings Pie and Rice with Milk,... leaving for those more daring, the innovations of the new avant-garde cuisine, such as Pears in Red Mencia Wine, Caramelized Bananas with Brandy or Sweet Cane; these are the perfect complement to combine with the spirits of the region (Coffee and Cream Liqueurs, Herbs, Liquor, Cherry liqueur ...) or the famous toasted Valdeorras wine.
Despite that today's topic is all about gastronomy, in the coming days we will offer you thousand and one incentives of Valdeorras, that make this land a unique place in the world which will welcome you with opened arms.
We will be waiting for you!
