"Comprised of 80% Godello and 20% Doña Blanca, from multiple plots of 30-80 year old vines, grown on sandy loam and clay soils, at 550 meters elevation, located in the areas of Cacabelos and Valtuille. It is fermented with wild yeasts in stainless steel vat and raised on the lees with weekly battonage for 5 months. No oak. Brezo Blanco is a fresh, mineral, and elegant wine with notes of citrus, lanolin, and white pepper, a delicious wine to pair with fresh seafood, cheeses, roast chicken, and jamón. 1,250 cases produced. About the producer Gregory Perez came to Bierzo from his native Bordeaux in 2001 to work as an enologist for a large winery. By 2007, Gregory had begun to reject the new winemaking methods, and set out with a newly defined vision: to produce Bierzo wines, free of artifice, and that express the Bierzo terroir in a clear and concise manner. With the purchase of his own 5ha, he started Bodegas Mengoba, named after the native grapes of Bierzo – Mencía, Godello, and Doña Blanca. To achieve his goal, Gregory works only with native grapes, farming them as organically as possible, and working with natural winemaking methods, such as fermenting all of his wines with wild yeasts and working with very little sulfur during the winemaking process. Gregory has also started a second project to showcase his work as a micro-negociant, exclusively buying fruit from growers that focus on the health of the soil first and that do not use herbicides."
