Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Akilia Villa de San Lorenzo Blanco is a white wine coupage from the Palomino and Doña Blanca varieties produced by the Akilia winery under D.O. Bierzo, in Castile-Leon, Spain.

 

Akilia Villa de San Lorenzo Blanco is made with bunches which come from a small west-facing plot of 0.5 hectares which has clay-loam soils on quartzites and slate where vines about 75 years old grow. The grapes are harvested manually and fermented in 2,000-liter tanks. 70% of the resulting wine is aged on its fine lees for 5 months in stainless steel tanks and the rest is aged in used 228-liter French oak barrels for 5 months.

 

The vineyards are located on the slopes of the Aquilian Mountains, imposing massifs which surprised the Romans on their arrival in Bierzo because they also found a large presence of eagles (aquilias), hence the name of the Akilia winery, where Mario Rovira is the architect. His aim is the recovery of old vineyards of native varieties which reveal the full potential of the Bierzo. Undoubtedly a young project with a very personal identity but with all the character of this surprising and much-admired wine region.

Pictures and situation Akilia
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.
