Characteristics of Xestal Mencía
Bodegas y Viñedos Gancedo's aim is to recover varieties local to Bierzo, such as Mencia, Godello and Doña Blanca. Xestal meets this goal perfectly. It is made of Mencia grapes from 60-100 year old vines. The vineyards are cultivated in the traditional manner with very low production per vine. This wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, clarified with egg white and lightly filtered. This wine can be stored for 2 years.

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.
