Godello was one of the original varietals grown in the region by the Romans over two thousand years ago, since then the grape has slowly drifted toward obscurity until newer winemakers in the area decided to resurrect this unique varietal that is native to Valdeorras.
Angel Lopez and his family moved from grape-growing to wine-making in 2002. They restored the original Roman building in the heart of their vineyard plots.
As the most in-land part of Galicia, Valdeorras enjoys warmer days than most of the region but still benefits from the cool air traveling along the river Sil.
This is a complex, elegant and intense wine. The bouquet is marked by the ripe fruit flavours of apples, pears and melon. Pleasant floral notes and gorse flower can be also found, the characteristic of great Godellos.
