Guímaro is a young red wine from Ribeira Sacra prepared by Adega Guímaro. This is a single variety of Mencia.

The grapes used for this wine comes from vineyards treated completely by hand planted on spectacular steep terraces in Amandi, one of the five sub-areas that divides the Ribeira Sacra. Wine has been produced in this region for more than 2,000 years. In fact, it was the Romans who began working on these steep slopes.

The wines of this area, of low production but high quality, were praised even by the New York Times in 2009.

Adega Guímaro was built early in the century and the wines are produced in the traditional way. In 1991 a major reform did improve their conditions and the winery is now one of the flagship wineries of the Ribeira Sacra.

Adega Guímaro also has planned to launch organic wines made from native Galician varieties.

Among the regions that make up the landscape of Galician wines, Ribeira Sacra is one of the most representative scenarios of what is known as heroic viticulture. To the heroic character of Guímaro, we must add the familiar and traditional dedication that the human team has with nature, to achieve wines that are honest with the terroir where they are born. Adegas Guímaro is among the 100 Best Wineries of the World 2015, according to the ranking made each year by Wine & Spirits magazine for the Top 100 Tasting Event awards. Its red wines Finca Pombeiras and Finca Capeliños, both with 96 points, are also at the top of the Galician ranking in the Robert Parker newsletter of 2015.
Pictures and situation Guímaro
Ribeira Sacra is one of those magical places that you just have to visit to truly experience it. The vertiginous terraces rise steep on the banks of the river Sil, making the terrain difficult to work on that it requires complete manual work and labor on the vineyards. The agriculture carried out here is aptly referred to as ‘heroic agriculture’, due to the hard work carried out cultivating the land. Both red and white wines are produced in the Ribeira Sacra. The red wines are mostly made with the Mencía variety, defined by their expressive and elegant character with a good acidity. The Ribeira Sacra white wines are principally made with the Godello and Albariño varieties. They are wines with a good volume in the mouth, aromatic and fruity. The Ribeira Sacra wines are often come in very limited productions, are of high quality and with notable personalities.
