Located in Galicia, right at the heart of Valdeorras´ region, A Coroa Winery was erected in the 18th century in a magical place, rising out of a crown-shaped promontory that gives it its name. Built on the ruins of an ancient Roman fort and surrounded by vineyards, where there still flourish vestiges of its history.
Considered one of the oldest wineries in Galicia, A Coroa’s first project was born around 1750, and sprang from the romance between an overseas general and a beautiful native, her land and her wines.
The love for Valdeorras, its people and its history, is reflected in the wine that is produced there, that already extolled the name of A Coroa in the old Madrid.
In 2002, from the union of Roberto Fernández García with the fourth generation of the winegrowers´ family López Vicente, the new A Coroa is born and founded, a tribute to its ancestors, their effort, and their commitment.
With the firm desire to produce only the highest quality wines, the original building is carefully re-stored using only indigenous materials integrated in the environment: stone, clay, wood and slate. The complex is also equipped with the most modern winemaking technology to safeguard the maximum expression and naturalness of the grape. Also, vineyards are recovered and acquired in the best grow-ing areas of Valdeorras.
Today, based on a rational and modern viticulture that takes advantage of the personality of the varie-ty Godello, we work convinced that the wine is mainly obtained in the vineyard.
In A Coroa we base our work on 4 fundamental pillars, seeking a clear differentiation and a firm commitment to the highest quality:
- Heterogeneity of vineyards.
- Integrated Production.
- Controlled Production.
- Implementation of the most modern and current production systems.
This is why A Coroa wines are present on the best tables in almost 20 countries of 4 continents, and backed by more than 100 international awards and mentions.
Attached to the Valdeorras Designation of Origin, in A Coroa we make three single-varietal white wines from Godello and a very special red from Grenache grapes of century-old vines.
Always looking for the maximum quality and naturalness of the Godello, in A Coroa we have the most modern winemaking equipment: manual sorting table, pneumatic press, tanks provided with automatic cooling, peristaltic pump and micro-filtration equipment.
Convinced that a great wine is made in the vineyard, our production system focuses on a thorough and rational treatment of the fruit, using technology and respecting the heterogeneity of the land.
From our enologist Ángel Sánchez, a great connoisseur of the varieties and viticulture of Valdeorras thanks to his more than 25 years of experience in the region, we bet for a rational and modern viti-culture taking advantage of the personality of the Godello grape in order to offer our clients only the best elaborations.
