The La Val winery was founded in 1985 in the Galician village of O Rosal as a pioneer in the “Denomination de Orígen” Rías Baixas. They started growing just three grape varieties: Albariño, Loureiro, and Treixadura…the same ones that are present in their wines today. La Val is one of the first wineries to adopt the philosophy of sourcing the grapes only from their own vineyards. The traditional winemaking of Bodegas La Val combines with the latest technology available to produce a unique wine tasting experience. Their soil is sandy and/or granitic with lots of pebbles and high organic material. The land enjoys optimal sun hours and weather conditions. This allows for the grapes to undergo an excellent ripening process.
