Sampayolo is a cellar placed in the council of
Petin de Valdeorras, province of Ourense, belonging to the D.O
of Valdeorras that it is one of the oldest D.O of Spain. We
are a young cellar and it is the result of the ambition of Javier
Garcia to recuperate the old wine yards of his family and the
traditional stock wine from Galicia, some ones more that one
hundred years old stocks wines.
The wines that we make are single variety wines
with Godello and Mencía. The single variety wines are
high quality wines elaborate with the target of to integrate
the ancestral craft techniques of the viticulture with the most
advanced process of the wine production. The combination of
the old traditional knowledge with the new oenology techniques
allow us to offer a high quality wines full of taste and flavour.
In despite of the early life of our cellar the traditional knowledge
of wine makers from Valdeorras is impressed in our wines.

One hundred years old stocks wines
The perfect mixture of grapes coming from stocks
wines more than 100 years old and some ones younger coming from
the news wine yards is the base of our wines. The pruning in
“espaller” gives to the raceme the right ventilation
and we use natural fertilizers to treat the earth.
The photobiology treatments are no aggressive
with the environment (not chemical products are allowed). During
the grape´s harvest, we check every day the sugar, gradation,
ph and acid, to guarantee the best grape’s ripe.
The fermentation is making with the last technology.
The use of modern stainless steel tanks allow us to have a perfect
control of the temperature during the fermentation The perfect
decant of the wine’s mud is favoured by the low temperature
of the Galician winter and using a traditional system to clear
it as egg’s white that is fully respectful with the environment.
