Guimaro ‘Cepas Viejas’, Godello

24.00

“Meaning ‘rebel’ in local Gallego dialect, Guimaro was founded in 1991 by young winemaker, Pedro Rodriguez, a practising organic farmer in Galicia with 8 hectares of land.

Guímaro, ‘Cepas Viejas” is made from their oldest Godello vines grown on steep slopes of granite and slate. A serious and complex white wine. Great value.

Ribeira Sacra is regarded as the most spectacular, yet still largely unexplored DO in the North-Eastern Spain. Just as the neighbouring Bierzo and Valdeorras, the recognition this area received in recent years, was only possible thanks to the determination and courage of a handful of young winemakers. Among them Pedro Rodriguez of Guimaro stands out with the range of his unique, divinely scented wines. They combine the intensity of old vine Godello and Mencia fruit, with the extraordinary freshness and finesse, derived from the high altitude, Atlantic influenced vineyards – VinisitoThe wines of Adega Guimaro are made by Pedro Rodríguez Peréz whose family have been instrumental in renovating the abandoned terraces of mencia that are so steep they rival the Mosel for sheer precariousness. He owns just seven hectares of vineyards, farming them completely by hand, in the tiny region of Ribeira Sacra in Galicia, north-west Spain. Here Mencia and Godello have been grown for centuries, and to an extent ignored, but in recent years many young winemakers, like Pedro, are rediscovering these ancient vineyards and bringing them back to life with improved viticultural methods.
