Bodegas Avancia lies snuggled in the slate dominant mountainsides of Valdeorras, high above the Sil RiverIn in the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia. Named for the extensive gold mining that the Romans conducted in this area, (Val-de-Oras roughly translates to Valley-of-Gold in Latin) Valdeorras is home to the finest terroir for growing two of Spain’s most important indigenous grapes – Godello and Mencía.

Aromas of honeysuckle blossom and bright citrus flavors such as lemon, mandarin, lime and kiwi fruit are common. DNA profiling says that Spain’s Godello is actually identical to the Portugese grape variety Gouveio,  If you are new to this grape and need a reference point, it could be likened to Chenin blanc in aroma, texture and flavors. 
Try it with lobster, King Crab, or rich seafood pasta dishes.
