Gran Anyada has always looked for areas where the grown varieties express their full potential. The Monterrei DO is one of the Galician denominations located in the south-east of the region, next to Portugal. Its granite slopes are watered by the river Támega, a tributary of the river Duero. That is the reason why the traditional Galician wine-growing varieties have been preserved, and the Godello is one of them. Increasingly, the market asks for a type of wine with character, and which expresses the typicality of the area. That is precisely what the wine experts Maria Bigordà, father and son, together with the Da Silva family, have worked so hard for. We believe the effort has paid off! Oh, and the name SPECIAL ONE refers to a very good friend of the Gran Anyada team!
