Characteristics of Guímaro A Ponte
Guímaro A Ponte is an organic red wine made with the Mencía, Caiño Tinto, Merenzao, Brancelleo and Souson native varieties in the D.O. Ribeira Sacra by the Guímaro winery.
Pedro M. Rodríguez Pérez started this project by picking up a family winemaking tradition that dates back to 1886. To do this, the winery, which was renovated in 1991, has opted for traditional, artisanal and ecological production. All of this work was recognised by the prestigious Parker in 2008, and since then Guímaro wines have become an international benchmark of the D.O. Ribeira Sacra.
Guímaro A Ponte comes from vines aged between 35 and 40 years old, planted in granitic, slate and sandy soils. Thanks to the diverse terrain of the Ribeira Sacra the plots are very different from each other and offer a great wealth of nuances. No herbicides or chemicals are used in the vineyard. The harvest is carried out manually and collected in boxes.
Once the grape has been selected, it is macerated cold for 5 or 6 days. Alcoholic fermentation of Guímaro A Ponte happens at a controlled temperature of 25ºC. After malolactic fermentation, it is transferred and aged for 12 months in used French oak barrels. It is then clarified.
Guímaro A Ponte is a red wine with all the freshness and expressiveness of one of today’s most popular denominations.

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.
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.
