Description
 
Bodegas Avancia was established in 2007 and is a project created by Jorge Ordoñez in partnership with Bodegas Godeval. The winery is located in the mountainous Autonomous Community of Galicia. The Valdeorras appellation, and more specifically the native Godello grape variety, has an interesting history, in which Jorge Ordoñez has played a major part. The Godello grape variety is rarely found outside of Valdeorras and nearly went extinct when local farmers abandoned their land for the cities in tough times. It was a pair of government employees working in the area who decided to try to save the local vineyards by developing high quality wines, which were very distinct from those grown elsewhere in Spain. Their plantings of an experimental 16-hectare plot of Godello vines eventually led to the creation of Bodegas Godeval. Jorge Ordoñez became infatuated with these Godellos and was the first to introduce the Godello grape variety to the United States in the early 1990s. Jorge became the ‘patron saint’ for this mysterious variety and for many years, he was the only US importer offering these unique wines. Jorge always dreamt of having his own Godello project, and in 2007, Bodegas Avancia became the realization of this dream.

The 2014 Cuvee De O Godello is three-fourths stainless steel fermented and aged, with the remainder barrel fermented. This wine, coming from 100% slate soils with a cold, northerly exposition, shows loads of caramelized grapefruit, mango, pineapple and a Chardonnay-like texture, but has crisp acids and a fresh, lively mouthfeel. It's a beauty. Drink now through 2018. Wine Advocate 88
