Mengonba Blanco is a white wine from the D.O Bierzo produced by Bodega y Viñedos Mengoba, a winery founded back in 2007 by winemaker Gregory Pérez and is home to 13 hectares of old vineyards.

The winery is located in San Juan de Carracedo, close to the Carracedo Monastry, one of the most important in the Bierzo and the Camino de Santiago (Way of St James). The region is home to smooth and moderate climate with high humidity. The average annual temperature is 12.3ºC, reaching lows of 3.6ºC in winter and highs of 23.6ºC in the hottest months of summer.

This wine is a blend of two different grape varieties: Doña Blanca and Godello, which come from old vines aged between 25 and 80 years old. The vineyards are home to slate, calcareous and stony soils and are cultivated using artisan methods, using outside products only if there is a risk of illness.

At the winery, the different grape varieties undergo fermentation separately, with the Godello grapes fermenting in wooden fudres, while the Doña Blanca grapes ferment in stainless steel tanks, at low temperatures. Following this, the wine is aged on its lees for between 6 and 8 months, with weekly battonages. Mengonba Blanco is then finally bottled following a light clarification and filtration.

Pictures and situation Mengoba
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.
