STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

Hailing from the same corner of north-west Spain, Godello is sometimes over shadowed by the more familiar Albarino. But that was the past and is now considered a reference point for the rise in diversity of Spanish whites. The less familiar Doña Blanca is seen as a natural blending partner, with its perfumed aromatics complimenting Godello’s texture. Jose Antonio and Julia Peña García are now known for producing the best white wines in the Bierzo region. The combination here of organically farmed, co-fermentation and old vines produces a singularly unique blend. It’s one of the wines they have built their considerable reputation on.
