In the northwest of the province of León. It includes 23 municipalities: Benuza, Berlanga del Bierzo, Fabero, Folgoso de la Ribera, Igüeña, Oencia, Sobrado, Toreno, Torre Del Bierzo and Trabadelo and occupies several valleys in mountainous area and a flat depression located at a lower altitude than the Leonese plateau, with higher temperatures but with a higher rainfall. It can be considered as a transition zone between Galicia, León and Asturias.


It is temperate and quite mild with a certain humidity due to the Galician influence, but also dry like the Castilian. Thanks to the low altitude, late frosts are avoided quite well and the grape harvest is usually one month earlier than in the rest of Castile. The average annual rainfall is 721 mm. 


In the mountain areas they are formed by a mixture of fine elements, quartzite and slate. In general, the soils of the wine region are moist brown earth and slightly acidic. The highest quality indexes are associated with the terraces of little inclination close to the rivers, the semi-steep slopes or those of pronounced inclination located at an altitude of between 450 and 1,000 meters.


White: godello, dona blanca, palomino and malvasía.

Reds: mencía or black, garnacha tintorera, estaladiña and merenzao. 


Pale yellow, light, fresh and fruity. The wines with the most character are those in which the Godello variety participates, with an enveloping and oily mouth and a long and balanced finish. 

The color can range from onion skin to pinkish tones; on the nose, the aromas of strawberries and raspberries typical of the Mencía grape, which should account for at least 50% of the blend, will stand out. They are, in general, light and smooth.

This is the most characteristic product of the appellation. The young reds stand out, sometimes with the danger of a somewhat low acidity due to the rapid maturation of the mencía in such a mild climate. Intense cherry color with a bright violet rim, very fruity and with great aromatic power (strawberries, blackberries) typical of the variety; in the mouth they are dry, light, fruity and with great varietal character. We also produce red wines aged in wood.
