Winemaker Notes

Pagos del Galir Godello aims to reflect the identity of Éntoma red wine: a wine that showcases the potential of Atlantic red wines from the banks of the Sil and Galir Valley.

The wine has a deep color. The nose shows intense aromas of red and predominantly black fruits accompanied by spicy, fresh and balsamic notes. The palate is balanced and complex, full-bodied and with warm tannins. On the palate, it is fresh, aromatic and concentrated with balsamic notes. The finish is long and driven by vibrant acidity.

A perfect match for rice dishes, game or chocolate.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling
Aromas of blackberries, dark cherries, slate, forest wood and baking spices. Medium-bodied with sleek tannins and crisp acidity. Creamy, with a ripe entry, followed by a silky and juicy texture. Balanced and precise. Long finish.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A pretty nose of wild sage and stone notes accent the palate's black raspberry and black cherry fruit flavors in this bright, light- to medium-bodied red. Framed by light tannings, this lingers on the finish with hints of spice and herb.

Bodegas Virgen del Galir, Spain
Bodegas Virgen del Galir  Winery Image

The Virgen del Galir winery is located in Éntoma, a small village in Orense. It has been part of the CVNE family since 2018. The Galir Valley falls under the Valdeorras DO (designation of origin). The winery’s philosophy is to make wines that reflect the values of the land whilst respecting local traditions. This begins with the winery’s name, a tribute to Our Lady of Galir, the protector of the region’s vineyards.

In recent years, several vineyards have been replanted and recovered in the Galir and Bibei Valleys to produce a complete range of villa (“terroir”), parcela (plot of land) and gran cru wines. The white wines of Virgen del Galir are made with grapes from the Galir Valley, an area with a lot of slate and vineyards at high altitude. The red wines are harvested from vines grown on granite soil, from plots in the Galir and Bibei Valleys.

The Virgen del Galir team is young and dynamic, closely linked to the environment and traditions of this place, with extensive knowledge of the area. Miguel Tienda and the oenologist Jorge Navascues are responsible for heading up the team and contribute their extensive experience in the wine sector and their great ideas to a project with a promising future.

Just to the south of Bierzo, the steeply terraced Valdeorras Spanish wine region is a respected source of both red and white wines. Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet) and Mencía are the principal red varieties while Godello and Palomino compose the majority of this region's whites.

Primarily found in the Bierzo, Ribeira Sacra and Valdeorras regions of Spain and in the Dão of Portugal (where it is called Jaen), Mencia is an early ripening, low acid grape that can produce wines of great concentration, complexity and ageability. And yet Mencia once suffered from a poor reputation and deemed capable of producing simple and light red wines. Post-phylloxera growers would grow this variety on low, fertile plains, which produced high yields and uncomplicated finished wines. Somm Secret—The recent rediscovery of the ancient, abandoned vines planted on rugged hillsides of deep schist has unveiled the potential of Mencia and added discredit to its old reputation.
