The climate in El Bierzo, a region situated in a valley surrounded by mountains, is relatively mild and temperate, regulated by a certain level of humidity. The grapes used for Pyjama Godello are situated in the towns of Viladecanes and Villafranca del Bierzo, and have an average age of over 50 years. The vines, planted on low bush vines, are worked and cultivated manually. The harvest is also carried out manually, using small 10kg capacity boxes, and only when the grapes have reached their optimum point of maturation.
The vinification process for Pyjama Godello is carried out under completely controlled conditions in stainless steel tanks. Following eight days of maceration and fermentation, the wine is incubated where is briefly aged for 5 months on its selected lees, 80% in tanks, with the other 20% in 225litre capacity barrels.
Nacho León, an agricultural engineer, is the man at the helm of the Demencia de Autor winery. The winery specialises in working with the Mencía grape, and occasionally with the Godello variety, a variety native to the neighbouring Valdeorras region.
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".
