The maintenance of the fees for 2013, the new promotional events, the tribute to Horacio Fernández Presa, the presentation of the new wine of Adega A Pinguela and the collaboration of the wineries of DO Valdeorras appellation with some Galician cultural collectives determine the beginning of year in Valdeorras.
The last plenary session of the Regulatory Council agreed to maintain the same qualifying prices of previous years for the 2013 vintage, being this the eighth consecutive year without changes in the fares.
According to its the President, José Luis García Pando says: 'we cannot ask the wineries for a greater effort since we are able to support ourselves and, so far, we are fine'.
Therefore, the compromise that emerges from the Wineries and the Regulatory Council with the Valdeorras' wine consumers remains in offering an outstanding and internationally recognized product at the best price.
In turn, the Regulatory Council has confirmed two new international presentations for 2013. Switzerland and Japan are the planned destinations to go on with a policy of international promotion that, so far, has already brought remarkable successes in demanding markets such as the American and the Belgian in 2012.
Meanwhile, one of the "souls mater" in the recovery of the Valdeorras Godello variety and Chief winemaker of the Winery Godeval, Horacio Fernández Presa, received the last friday a deserved tribute to his career.

And to conclude this first article of 2013, we echo the participation of two wineries of the DO Valdeorras appellation at the III Winter Solstice Tasting of the cultural association of music and dance ´Flores Mareliñas´.
Adega A Coroa gave up its Godello 2011 and Adega Roandi did the same with its latest creation, the sparkling wine "Brinde", in an act that reinforces the cultural union of music and dance with the spirituous manufactures of the land.
Through this collaboration, the wineries of DO Valdeorras appellation show their commitment to the cultural heritage of Galicia, in close harmony with some of its ludic demonstrations such as music and dances.
