Characteristics of Aires de Vendimia Godello
Aires de Vendimia Godello is a white wine produced by José Antonio Garcia Viticultorin Valtuille de Abajo, D.O.Bierzo.
José Antonio García began this project in 2010. After training and working in the restoration industry in Barcelona, he decided to recover the old family vineyards and start to produce wines, with features that were loyal to the terroir and the varieties.
José Antonio García's family has 22 hectares of old vineyards, between 80 and 100 years old, divided into 75 plots. José Antonio also cultivates 4 more hectares of smaller winegrowers of the area. All of these vineyards are located between 500 and 600 metres, influenced by an Atlantic climate that is partly continental and mild.
José Antonio García works with respect towards the environment, performing organic winegrowing, and aiming to produce wines that represent the area, with local varieties, and always loyal to the terroir where they were born.
Aires de Vendimia Godello is a wine made from Godello from their own vineyards, which were planted more than 120 years ago on clay soils with loam-sandy areas. They are located between 500 and 600 metres of altitude.
Harvesting is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard. The grapes are completely destemmed and they go through a pre-fermentative maceration for 48 hours. The spontaneous fermentation is performed with local yeasts, without temperature control, in French oak barrels. It does not go through malolactic fermentation. It remains in the barrels for a year with the biological yeast cap (velo), and another extra year in stainless steel deposits going through a biological ageing process. It is bottled without clarifying, stabilising nor filtering.
Aires de Vendimia Godello is a defined, intense and fresh wine. Notes of ripe white fruit with a very elegant bitter touch that makes it very long.

The 2014 vintage was characterised by a marked Atlantic climate. The rains and the cold in autumn prevailed, leading to a somewhat warmer than usual winter. Spring started mildly, with a two-week delay in budding and the rains were sporadic, with a total water accumulation of 1,000 mm that gives the vintage its Atlantic character. In July and August, temperatures rose and rainfall was scarce, leaving the grapes to ripen in an excellent way and giving the vintage a little more structure. At the end of August, they suffered high temperatures, and in September, the traditional rains made the harvest quite difficult. The wines of this vintage are characterised by their great complexity. A wine with an Atlantic and fresh character and a structure provided by the warmer end of cycle. Wines with a long life ahead.

Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity. Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
