Galicia– Angel López and his family founded this winery in 2002 after spending years in the nursery business in Valdeorras.They farm a total of 12 hectares, composed of several vineyard sites mostly located in the area around the winery at A Rúa. These parcels have varying exposures and elevations but share slate soils and the Godello grape as a unifying element. As the most inland part of Galicia, Valdeorras enjoys warmer days than most of the region but still benefits from the cool air traveling along the river Sil. Crucially, A Coroa’s vineyard plots are up on the hillsides (mostly around 500m elevation). All the vineyards are hand harvested with sustainable viticulture and grapes are fermented using indigenous yeast at low temperatures.
