A project of Bodegas Godeval and Jorge Ordonez, Bodegas Avancia is located in the mountains next to El Barco de Valdeorras, in the province of Galicia in northwest Spain. The 35 year-old Godello vineyards are located on mountain slopes in terraces at 1,350-1,650 ft. The soil is composed of metamorphic slate and quartz. Strong Atlantic climatic influences support Godello and help give it natural acidity and structure.
This wine is a superb value made from estate owned organically grown grapes. All the grapes come from the specific high elevation site of A Portela. A Portela is a joint venture between the Sharon family and CVA. The Sharon family possesses the largest holdings of vineyard land in the Valdeorras appellation. A Portela is made with the best 20% of the vineyard land of the Sharon family. The mineral character of A Portela gives the wine a special identity.
