/* */ Slate-based


The geological substratum of Valdeorras is mainly made up of schist and ordovicic and siluric slate with sandstone bands. The slate-based soils are shallow (30-50 cm), and very stony, especially at surface level, with a generally silty texture. The vineyards cultivated in these soils yield sapid wines with aromatic elements, which are subtle and have a notable mineral content. The land is suitably warm, which increases the alcoholic content and the complexity of the grapes.
