DETAILS
José Pato Oviedo, proud owner of Carballal, speaks not a word of English. In fact he doesn’t speak much Spanish either, but Gallegos, a sort of Welsh Spanish that is virtually impossible to understand. No matter, when we turn up to taste his wines and visit his vineyard and cellars, it is obvious that he loves and understands his vines. He is dedicated to producing wines that represent the region and committed to trying to be among the finest bodegas in the valley. His cellars are spotless and his pride in what he has built up is frankly deserved, there are plenty of bodegas in Valdeorras who go through the motions but not here, these are wines with serious aspirations. 

The vineyards are located around Petin, in the heart of Valdeorras located 50km east of Ourense on the river Sil, with its eastern border being with Castilla y Leon, and the area of Bierzo over the mountains. The vineyards are located on the valley floor, with alluvial soil mixed with clay and limestone, and on the hillsides where poorer, limestone soils are the norm. All the wines are fermented in stainless steel (Mencia has a strange ability to appear to be oaked when it has never seen a piece of wood) and settled prior to bottling. A simple and effective procedure producing fresh, lifted wines. 
Can do Sil is a cracking wine produced from Mencia and Garnacha Tinto from younger vines and parcels around the cellar. It is unoaked and bright forward and deliciously drinkable. We will introduce the white wine later in the summer
