Godello   /go DAY yo/

A forgotten star of the ‘70s, this grape is slowly re-emerging as Spain’s alternative to Chardonnay. Believed to be related to the Verdelho grape – commonly used for Aussie blends – Godello is easy drinking and versatile. Known for showing its terroir, this wine variety is a conversation starter and something to try when your go-to whites lose their novelty.
