Bierzo & Valdeorras in pictures

db was lucky enough to be invited to explore two of Spain’s most exciting emerging regions: Bierzo and Valdeorras courtesy of Wines from Spain this week. Hosted by María José Sevilla, the trip began in Valdeorras (the valley of gold), in the province of Ourense in Galicia. After the Romans had finished mining the area for gold, they gave something back to the region by planting vines on steep slopes in sandy granite soils.
