We love (almost) nothing more than introducing you to grape varieties you may have never heard of. Dominio de Tares (Bierzo, Spain) prides themselves on just that-rescuing indigenous varietals from extinction and introducing them to wine lovers around the world. Founded in 2000, the winery works exclusively with two grapes: Mencia & Godello. Located in high-altitude Bierzo (northwestern Spain), the region consists of several small farm holdings as vineyards have been passed down from parents to children and subdivided accordingly.

Godello is a white grape we don’t see everyday, but we sure get excited when we do. Harvested by hand, it is aged in stainless steel and on lees for 5 months, bringing a creamy texture to the palate. Retaining lemony acidity, it is refreshing, medium weight, with notes of white flowers, green apple, and peach. “Sonrisa” translates to “smile”, referencing the wine as “the smile of Tares'“. Paired up with ceviche, fish tacos, or a poke bowl, this wine will definitely make you smile.
