Bodegas La Val, founded in 1985, is one of the pioneer brands in DO Rías Baixas. Initially the winery was located in the town of O Rosal, close to the mouth of the Miño River, but moved to Finca Arantei, in Condado de Tea, in 2003.
La Val was one of the first wineries in the region to source grapes only from its own vineyards. These vineyards span more than 148 acres in the sub-region of Condado de Tea and O Rosal, divided into four estates located in the villages of Salvatierra de Miño, As Neves and Tui, where they enjoy a very favorable micro-climate which allows for healthy ripening of the grapes. Soil types range from alluvial and granite to slate, allowing the winery to produce terroir-driven wines with a range of complexity and minerality.
