The Virgen del  Galir winery was founded in 2002 in a valley of the Galir river, in Éntoma, a small village in Orense, Galicia, Northern Spain. The “Camino de Santiago” crosses through this village in the Valdeorras DO, and this semi-forgotten region has extraordinary vineyards. Virgen del Galir owns 20 hectares of vineyards on practically as many plots, on a valley of the Galir river with an altitude over 600m. The ground is made up almost entirely of decomposed schist on terraces.

Maruxa, or Mary in English, is a Great Galician Name. She was the winery founders’ mother. The wine comes from our vineyards in the village of Éntoma, Valdeorras. We classify it as a village wine. Grapes used for Maruxa come from our terraced vineyards in the village of Entoma, Valderrosal and Valdemioto vineyards. Clay and decomposed schist soils. Manual harvest in 15 kgs cases. Cold maceration of the grapes in scale fridges and of the must 48 hours before alcoholic fermentation. Destemmed but not crushed in order to preserve the primary aromas. Fermentation with autochthonous yeast.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine has a brilliant clean red cherry color. Explosion of aromas on the nose, intense fresh red fruit flavors, mineral and earthy. In the mouth the wine is broad and fresh with a good acidity.
Vineyard Notes
Grapes used for Maruxa come from our terraced vineyards in the village of Entoma, for our Mencía from Valderrosal and Valdemioto vineyards. We classify it as a village wine.
Winemaker Notes
The 2018 harvest took place during the second fortnight of September. A dry summer provided full grape maturity, and a fresh and aromatic harvest. Yields were lower due to rains during the bloom. It could be one of the best harvests of the last 10 years.
