DO Monterrei

 

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 Jose Manuel Martínez Juste and Marià Bigordà, father and son, have worked hard for. We believe the effort has paid of! Oh, and the name SPECIAL ONE refers to a very good friend of the Gran Anyada team!
