James Suckling 92 points – Some richer ripe melon and pear with grilled cashews and savory, spiced nougat. The palate has impressive freshness and a lively, crisp-cut finish. Drink now..April/2015
Jeb Dunnuck 93 points – From two vineyards planted in 1904 and 1910 (the vineyards are side by side), the 2016 Avancia Godello was aged 10 months in a mix of French oak puncheons and 500- and 600-liter demi-muids. It has more minerality and vibrancy than the cuvee de O Godello, as well as perfumed notes of citrus blossom, lychee, and saltiness, with a touch of building brioche and toasty notes developing with time in the glass. It’s a gorgeous white..March/2018

“The winery is a project of Bodegas Godeval and Jorge Ordonez. It is located in the mountains next to El Barco de Valdeorras, in the province of Orense (Galicia), in the northwest of Spain. The 35 year-old Godello vineyards are located on the mountain slopes, and are therefore in terraces. The composition of the soil is of metamorphic slate, although you could find granite in other vineyards of the appellation. Planted at 1,350-1,650 feet (450-550 m) above sea level. The two very old Mencia vineyards,70 and 85 years old, planted on vaso system on the hillsides facing south on soils made of decomposed black slate and quartz located at 550 m (1,800 ft) above sea level.”- From the Winery

10 months sur lie in French oak puncheons and demi-muids (500-600L barrels, respectively) with battonage.


Sourced from one of the oldest, most traditional vineyards planted in Valdeorras, Avancia Godello expresses the authenticity the history of Valdeorras and the oldest Godello clones in the world. A completely unique white wine that ages beautifully and has been recognized by Robert Parker as Spain’s best Godello. Godello was almost extinct at the end of the 1980’s, so it is extremely rare to find a Godello produced from a single vineyard planted in 1904.
