25 years of passion for wine: The Valdeorras Wine Fair celebrates its silver anniversary with the participation of over 20 wineries.

The poster designed by Miguelanxo Prado, the opening speech by journalist Xabier Fortes, and the cuisine by chef Xosé Manuel Mallón are some of the highlights of this new edition of the fair

At an event attended by the Mayor of O Barco, Alfredo García, Rodríguez Castellanos also wanted to thank all the staff of the Regulatory Council and the Plenary members for the effort made to coordinate the various actions that will take place, this time a month earlier than usual, in order to increase the already significant impact it has among wine professionals and enthusiasts and its international projection.

As part of the challenge posed by such a significant edition, the prestigious artist Miguelanxo Prado has been chosen to design the commemorative poster for the 25th anniversary. The winner of the ‘National Comic Award’ and the ‘Alph-Art for Best Foreign Album’, among others, has created a piece of art titled ‘Drinking the Earth and the Landscape’, which will be the image of the Fair. The Coruña-based illustrator emphasized, ‘I wanted to capture in the image of the poster what we condensed in its title. Inside the bottle, in that miracle which is wine, we can recognize its genetic footprint. In the case of Valdeorras, the water from the river, the lands of the valley, the elevations of the mountain slopes, the terraces, the granite, the slate, the sun, and the rain.

The Fair, which will take place on June 1st and 2nd at the fairground, will feature journalist and director of ‘La noche en 24 horas’, Xabier Fortes, as the official speaker in an event that will serve as the official inauguration of the event.
