Characteristics of Godelia Selección
Godelia Selección is a white wine from the D.O. Bierzo made by Bodegas Godelia. The bodega lies in the district of Pieros, a privileged setting which bears witness to the passage of countless pilgrims making their way to Santiago de Compostela. Godelia has reinvented itself to stand alongside the other bodegas in the region as a fine representative of the special character and spirit of El Bierzo.
This wine is made 100% with Godello grapes from old vines of 81 years of age, situated at around 750 metres above sea level.
The grapes are strictly and painstakingly selected in the vineyard. The harvest is carried out manually, using 15 kg boxes. The grapes are destemmed and softly pressed in an inert atmosphere. The grape must then goes through a static debourage for 24 hours and ferments in 30 hl stainless steel deposits at a temperature of 15ºC.
This wine ages in new fine grain French oak barrels of 500 l capacity for 8 months on its fine lees, applying the batonage technique (lees stirring).
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".
This winery is located in the Pieros hamlet. Its architecture, which is well-integrated with the surrounding landscape, is based on a typical small hamlet in a privileged enclave on the Camino de Santiago. Its facilities build on traditional techniques in order to guarantee the best production processes.
