Our history and our values
The Galician company Bodegas Godeval produces their wines today with the same effort and commitment with which they began, 30 years ago, to recover the white variety godello, under the Valdeorras Apellation. At its facilities, located in the historic setting of Xagoaza (O Barco), began their recovery godello variety project in the 80s, using part of Monastery of Xagoaza, a medieval building, as a winery and planting own vineyards, to control everything in the wine process and follow the idea of “that wine is made in the vineyard”. Over time and for continue coveringtheir customer demands, they increased its plantations and also the facilities. The new winery has been designed to become a viewpoint to the valley, which combines tradition and modernity.
The way we started
Bodegas Godeval was founded in 1986 by making a first winemaking to produce a single monovarietal wine based on grapes of the Godello variety.
We started with 2 hectares of vineyard and made 18,000 bottles known as Viña Godeval. In 1988 we expanded our production with the start-up of the winery inside the building known as “Monastery of Xagoaza”.
