The plots shaped by the fertile valley drew by the Sil river on the northeast part of the province of Ourense, are the ones responsible of the wine potential of Terriña. Its argillo-ferrous soils, cold winters and hot summers, soft autumns and springs, and an average annual rainfall contribute to make Valdeorras – whose literal meaning is “valley of gold” – an area producer of wine since the era of the Romans, who planted vineyards and built wineries.
Since that era, viticulturists and winemakers have travelled a long road until in 1945 the Designation of Origin Valdeorras was recognized by ministerial order.
Terriña, even though it was recently refurbished, is one of the oldest wineries of the DO Valdeorras. The winery, located in the town of Petín, consists of 25 hectares of vineyard, where wines protected by the DO Valdeorras are produced
This samll DO spreads from east to west, flanked by mountain ranges where the vines grow. During the last years it has been made a great effort to recover indigenous varieties, especially Godello and Mencía, and to produce wines with unique personality.
The quality of its white and red wines make Terriña a referent in the sector as a producer of fresh, clean and bright wines, but which as well are structured and intense, an elaborated with the varieties Godello and Mencía.
