Adega A Coroa is committed to Valdeorras land and to the vines to offer the best wines. This has led to the creation of 200 Cestos, a very special wine since it is a 100% Godello coming from a plot with special features, with vines over 75 years old planted in terraces.
The plot, for its location, orientation and height, obtained from the variety highlighting its potential godello elegance, complexity and power traditional aroma of this variety and looking for a rich wine with greater intensity of color, freshness and fruit background.
Our philosophy is based on the fact that the quality of a great wine is made in the vineyard; therefore, and faithful to this culture of work, all the grapes come solely from our vineyards of Integrated Production, in which we have a special care of the vines and the fruit, always with respect for the environment.
