Characteristics of Brezo Blanco
Brezo is a white wine from the D.O. Bierzo made by Bodega y Viñedos Mengoba. Brezo is a blend of Doña Blanca, grown in the vineyards of Espanillo and Carracedo and Godello from small plots located in Carracedo, Vilafranca and Valtuille (D.O. Bierzo). The vines are around 25 years old and are only treated in the traditional way (plowing with cows, green pruning and integrated pest control treatments, meaning that the vines are only treated with products if there's a risk of disease). To make Brezo Blanco, the must ferments at low temperature. It is aged on its lees for 5 months with weekly stirring. It is lightly clarified and filtered before being bottled.

A vintage where the Atlantic climate has ruled over the continental. The lightness of this type of climate, together with the perfect sanitary condition of the vineyard, has given rise to an excellent vintage from this area.
The year began with typical temperate and rainy winter weather. What differentiated the year was the intense rains that fell between the months of April and May, conditioning the vegetative development of the vine. The summer was then noticeable for being warm and dry, the perfect combination for the perfect grape.

In recent years, winemakers and developers have settled in the DO Bierzo with very plausible innovative ideas, investing heavily in local wineries, resulting in the production of personal and unique wines. There is no doubt that El Bierzo has become a trendy and cool D.O, aided by the spicy, delicate and velvety Mencia grape, whose character and great capacity of expression of terroir is undoubtedly the regions best asset. Even many compare it to the Pinot Noir, which together with the small scale style of production and topography of its vineyards, the traditional form of the Burgundian bottle used, and the original use of the names of towns and places in their best wines, resulted in this wine region being given the nickname of "little Spanish burgundy".
