Top 8% wine in the UK
Blend: 100% Godello
From: Spain, Valdeorras DO
By: Bodega Godeval
The Bodega Godeval was founded in 1986 by a collective dedicated to reviving the Godeval grape. They certainly succeeded; from two hectares producing 18,000 bottles of Godeval wines a year they now produce 150,000, all from the bodegas vineyards, all treated in the Bodega’s own winery.
The Bodega Godeval is close to the town of Ourense, famous for its hot springs. Here Horacio Fernández Presa and his team began the Revival project to recover the native Godello grape. The vineyards are filled with old vines from which the grapes are hand harvested before being taken to a very modern winery in the medieval Monastery de Xagoaza. Godeval Cepes Velhas is fermented with indigenous yeasts, fined and lightly filtered.
