Doña Rocío walks self-assuredly. She is a strong woman. When she was a child she saw how her mother became widowed and worked hard to see her husband’s project become a reality: a winery of unpackaged wine.
Today Doña Rocío is 86 years old but she is still involved in the project she started up long time ago. After the creation of Consejo Regulador del Bierzo (Council Regulation of Bierzo) in 2000, she had the idea of dedicating the best part of the harvest to Bodegas Adriá and produce wines to be aged, quality wines that are a good proof of the region where they are made and travel around the world.
Doña Rocío has transferred her vitality to her three daughters. Margarita is the one more linked to the winery, but all of them are. During the Shareholder’s meetings of Bodegas Adriá, in the picnic area, Doña Rocío asks Adelino, the Manager, about the condition of the grapes while her husband chats with the Oenologists, Rubén and Javier, in charge of the 40 hectares they work on. Meanwhile, Fran, Sales Representative, explains how, little by little, Bodegas Adriá is getting bigger, is getting good marks and forges a promising future closely related to quality, always loyal to that idea Doña Rocío worked on long time ago.

Vega Montán Godello - Doña Blanca
Godello and Doña Blanca
Production: 5,000 bottles
Clean, shiny and yellow straw-coloured. Medium intensity and good aroma with flower notes that remind violets and a touch of grass. It is very fresh in the mouth, light and fruity. It reminds the smell of freshly cut grass and has an optimum balance and acidity that provides the wine with freshness.
