Bodegas y Viñedos Mengoba

Mengoba founder Gregory Pérez is committed to practicing holistic winemaking and protecting the biodiversity of his land. He began his career in France, working at Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste and Château Cos d’Estournel before moving to Spain at the encouragement of his friends. It’s in Spain’s Bierzo D.O. where Gregory worked for several years before establishing Mengoba in 2007.

Mengoba vines are grown near the town of Espanillo, at the head of the river Cúa on steeply sloped vineyards situated 650 to 800 metres above sea level. The soils are infused with clay and decomposed slate and are regularly ploughed up and aerated to enhance the richness of the earth.

Gregory makes wines based on eight guiding principles: knowledge of the soil, protection of the land’s biodiversity, use of indigenous varietals, no aggressive treatments, no herbicides, low yields, hand-selection of grapes in the vineyard and traditional winemaking methods. His goal is and always has been to make authentic, great wine with minimal impact on nature, and his results are dazzling.

    Las Botas is bold white wine made from 100% Godello, from small plots with 70-year old vines. Only 500 bottles of this rare wine were produced by winemaker Gregory Perez. 

    Grapes are hand-harvested, destemmed and crushed . Once the grapes are destemmed and crushed, they go through pre-fermentation maceration. The grapes are then are poured into two 150-year old Manzanilla butts, where the wine ferments with indigenous yeasts. 

    Las Botas is a unique blend of the freshness and rustic nature of northern wines with the intensity and boldness of southern wines.

    This mountain white is made with 100% Godello hand-harvested from the best grapes on Gregory's small plots in the villages of Cacabellos, Valtuille and Villafranca in Spain's Bierzo region. The Valtuille and Villafranca soils are infused with calcerous clay, while Cacabellos' soils are infused with stone. 

    The wine was fermented with wild yeasts in wooden foudre and raised for ten months on fine lees in two 4,000 litre oval wooden vats.  There is a wonderful smoky minerality to this wine with notes of grapefruit, powder and savoury. 

    The finish offers deep earthy mineral notes, and a perfumed, mouthwatering length.
