Virgen del Galir Winery was founded in 2002 by José Barros García and his son David, in a valley of the Galir River, in Éntoma, a small town in Orense, Galicia. Located on the Camino de Santiago, it belongs to the Valdeorras Denomination of Origin. This almost forgotten region has some extraordinary vineyards. Virgen del Galir is supplied from its 20 hectares of vineyards, almost the same number of plots. Slate floors and decomposed granite in terraced land. The climate is continental with an Atlantic influence with a rainfall of 700 to 1000 mm per year, depending on the areas. Winters are cold and summers quite warm. Maruxa Godello is a magnificent white wine made by Virgen del Galir Winery with 100% Godello grapes within the protection of the regulatory board of Valdeorras Designation of Origin. The grapes used to make Maruxa Godello come from vineyards on terraces located in the town of Éntoma, from the plots of Regueirón, O Serro and Valdemioto. Clay loam soils with the presence of slates and other minerals. Manual harvest in boxes of 15 kgs. Once the grape enters the winery, it is introduced cold to avoid oxidation. Alcoholic fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature so that the wine preserves its varietal aromas.
