Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Rogo is a full bodied pure mineral expression of the Godello grape.

Pair this with the best piece of grilled swordfish, yellowtail or mahi you can find, simply prepared with herbs and beurre blanc. This also pairs well with soft, double- and triple-crème cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"From high-elevation, slate-strewn vineyards north of the Río Gil, this has the open, airy feel of a wildflower meadow, along with a red fruit tone that adds smoky complexity. The flavors of pine nuts and heather are round, the texture oily and firm, lasting on a scent of fresh pear. Decant this for grilled fish."
92 Points

"Bright straw. Highly perfumed scents of white flowers, orange and pear. Fresh, focused, refreshingly bitter orchard and citrus fruit flavors are complicated by honeysuckle and chalky minerals. Finishes dry and nervy, with lingering mineral and floral notes and very good length."
90 Points

Learn About Rogo

Rogo is a full bodied pure mineral expression of the Godello grape. In the words of Robert Parker, "One of the finest 100% Godello wines I have ever tasted." The goal with Rogo is to communicate the mineral tension of the town of Vilamartin, located less than a mile north of the Sil River, within the Valdeorras appellation. A selection of the best 30% Godello bunches from three different slate parcels make this limited 800 case production wine. The parcels that go into Rogo were planted in the early 90s, all of them at around 1470ft in elevation.
