Bodega Mengoba’s vineyards span over Espanillo, Valtuille, Villafranca de El Bierzo and Carracedo on the slate, calcareous and stony soils of these areas. Two varieties of grape are cultivated to make their white wine, Doña Blanca and Godello. The Mencía vines are located in Espanillo at about 2500 ft above sea level. The vines are between 25 and 80 years old. Winemaker Gregory Pérez takes great pride in the bodega’s artisanal vineyard work; the vines are grown organically and plowed by cows. Green pruning and integrated pest management are utilized, and they only intervene in the vineyard when absolutely necessary.
A blend of Godello and Doña Blanca aged sur lie for 6-7 months.
