the grapes, are the primary key to making good wine. Production centers on thorough and thoughtful processing of the grape, using the best technology and respecting the heterogeneity of the land. Oenologist Ángel Sanchez Cuesta, educated at the Requena Viticulture and Oenology School (Valencia), has been working at his profession in Valdeorras County for more than 17 years. An absolute connoisseur of viticulture and the Valdeorras grape varietials he is one of the pioneers of monovarietal winemaking with Godello and Mencia, and probably one of those who best knows the potential of vitiviniculture in this area. And the proof is in the bottle.

The nose is incredibly expressive: lanolin and sweet floral essences dance with river water, mixed melon scents and lemon grass, with just a touch of dairy cream in the background. The palate starts with sweet fruit in the fore, uplifted by brisk acidity; the mid-palate brings in a layer of richness, creaminess from months of lees stirring, along with a variety of stone fruit flavors, nectarine, white peach. The finish is elongated and tasty as this wine Over delivers for its price point. Really fantastic wine.

maintains the focus. Melon, coconut, spice and smoke flavors mingle harmoniously on the plush palate. The mineral element is fresh and long. Godello. Drink now through 2018." 100% Godello
From the oldest plots of Godeval - an average age of 50 years old at an altitude of 500 meters.

An intense and complex nose of ripe fruits, lime, fennel and mint. The apple, melon and peach fruit flavors carry on giving power to the wine which is deftly balance by brisk herbal notes and hints of mineral from the slate soils. A wine that really evolves in the glass and lingers with you, very adaptable for a wide array of dishes.

The Valdeorras valley is nestled in the highest mountains of the Galicia interior. This area is located in the province of Ourense and is home to just 200 hectares of the Godello variety. Bisected by the Sil River and protected by Galicia’s highest mountains, Valdeorras records both the highest and lowest temperatures in Galicia, together with the lowest rainfall of the area (800-1000mm). These factors, and wide differences between day and night temperatures, guarantee good acidity in the white wines.

area as a consultant had motivated him to try and recuperate the unique sub-zone of the Bibei Valley in the Municipality of O Bolo – characterized by its granite soils. The extreme topography and the low productivity of the soil had led to the almost complete abandonment of grape production in this tiny but historic county, cultivated traditionally on terraces.


"It is not cheap but I think it can easily hold its own against white burgundies selling at the same price. It had the structure and precision of a particularly fine Puligny-Montrachet but has its own very distinctive mountainous and, I'm afraid, mineral character. As well it might for it was grown on stone rather than soil, to judge from the pictures, on decomposed granite at 620 to 780 m above sea level. Old Godello vines are very rare since the variety had to be nursed back to proliferation as recently as the 1980s, but Palacios claims that the vines that provide this stunning wine are between 35 and 92 years old."
