Characteristics of Val de Paxariñas Capricho
Capricho de Val Paxariñas is a white wine from Bierzo produced by Bodegas Gancedo. This wine is a blend of Godello (85%) and Doña Blanca (15%).
The grapes come from strains of about 20 years old in the case of Godello and 60 in the Doña Blanca. The first variety grows in glass, while the second in trellises.
The soils are sandy and the vineyards which give rise to Capricho de Val Paxariñas are low-density, about 3000 vines per hectare. Production is therefore limited, one or two kilos per strain. Viticulture and winemaking are made using traditional methods.
Processing and finishing Capricho de Val Paxariñas takes place in stainless steel tanks.
Juani y Ginés are a pair of winemakers who are responsible for the cellar. The passion and pride with which they work allow them to achieve, year after year, some worthy wines are born.

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".
