100% Godello. Fruit is all estate owned and organically grown in the Valdeorras DO region of northwest Spain. Vineyard is located in the town of Larouco, which sits at 1,968 feet elevation. All fruit is hand picked. Grapes are all destemmed and crushed. Unfermented juice macerates on the skins for 8-12 hours. Zero malolactic fermentation takes place. Wine is aged in stainless steel tanks.


Ladera Sagrada has the largest holdings of vineyard land in the Valdeorras appellation, and the bodega makes wine using only the best 20% of its grapes. The rest of the given year's harvest is sold in bulk to other neighboring producers. Ladera Sagrada can source the best quality of grapes in Valdeorras and it has the ability to make the best wine values because it doesn't need to buy grapes from other growers.
