Traditional dry farmed viticulture. Bodegas Avancia practices organic and does not use any chemically synthesized fungicides, pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers.


Schist and black slate intermixed with decomposed quartz and red clay.


Mediterranean climate with an Atlantic influence. Very cold winters and very warm hot summers.


Hand-harvested and stored in 10kg crates for transportation to the winery. Bunches are sorted by the winery and chilled for 24 hours in a cold chamber to prevent oxidation and minimize SO2 required at the press. Bunches are partially destemmed (but not crushed) and partially maintained whole for the press, which is carried out in a horizontal pneumatic press. The must undergoes a static settling in stainless steel before being racked to puncheon and demi-muid (500L & 600L), 33.33% new, and inoculated with a pied de cuve started with neutral yeast. Fermentation is carried out at low temperaturas and MLF is blocked.


Ageing on the ees with battonage (in both tank and barrel) for 8 months.


Avancia Nobleza Godello is the estate's top expression of the power, purity, and minerality that can be achieved from very old vineyards of Valdeorras Godello.
