Bodegas Gancedo

A modern estate with lots of recent investment, Bodegas Gancedo has sustainability at its heart and is certified organic.

Gancedo was originally founded around 2001 by husband-and-wife team, Ginés Fernández and Juani Gancedo, with just 4 ha and another 4 rented, it grew steadily with another 8 ha added. Then in 2017 it took off after investment from José Cereijo and Luis Lopez. José is a qualified mine engineer who had worked all over the world before returning to his native Bierzo. After a couple of years, Señor Gines retired and today, José Cereijo is the driving force of the estate. The investment included buying an entire valley in order to be able to farm the whole estate organically. Today they have 80 ha, about 60 of which are currently in production and of these, 20 ha are young vines whose grapes are sold elsewhere. There are over 60 different plots of 60 to 100 year old vines, all grown between 500 and 650 metres above sea level on loamy soils with quartz sand. Sustainability is important at this estate with the vineyards being certified organic. The winery too has been updated with sustainability at its heart and solar panels providing all their power needs. José is helped by winemaker Nacho Alvarez. The winemaking is modern with the Godello being fermented in stainless steel tanks and concrete eggs then left on the lees for four months, while the Mencía is fermented in open tanks then aged and taken through malo in French oak barrels.

Vintage guide

Always difficult to generalise about Spain but 2022 saw high temperatures and an early harvest of clean grapes, the early signs look good. The 2021 vintage is very good after a warm dry season with wines showing good concentration and aromatics. A wet first half of the 2020 vintage meant a lot of work in the vineyard was needed but a better, more consistent second half resulted in some juicy young wines with those ageing in barrel looking very promising. A very good year, 2019 had warm dry conditions but yields were limited by a tricky flowering period. A cooler and wetter year than other recent vintages has endowed the wines of 2018 with greater freshness and lower alcohols. Across the country the wines are showing good aromatics, plenty of weight, and a juicy fresh character. Growers had a complex year in 2017 having to contend with frost, hail and drought. Yields are down as a result, but the picture overall is of good quality particularly in Galicia and the South, Penedès also performed well. The 2016 vintage was pretty good on the whole with Ribera del Duero, Rioja and Rueda having excellent results. 2015 was heralded as the best vintage across Spain in recent years, and particularly so in the north. 2014 saw some good wines made with a little rain in the second half of harvest and low yields. This came after the potentially great 2013 vintage which has given fresh, vibrant, robust wines.
