Castro Ventosa was founded by the Perez family in 1752 and has never changed hands. Their wines are are pure and full of character, a result of careful and dedicated work in the vineyard and a hands-off approach in the cellar. They have recently added two whites made from Godello to their range. The wines always had a very traditional profile, but they have adapted to the new categories from the Bierzo appellation. They are focusing on their vineyards and using larger barrels, and have moved toward more freshness in the wines. Rising star César Márquez now runs the cellar, and manages the project day to day, with input from his uncle Raul Perez.

A fine, textured Godello with unctuous mango and pineapple characters kept in check by bright linear acidity. It’s a serious, structured wine, but there’s no shortage of body. The grapes for this wine are sourced from a unique, sandy-soil plot in the castle grounds of Villafranca del Bierzo. Raúl loves the tropical flavours that emerge from Godello planted on sand.
