Characteristics of Guímaro Godello
Guímaro Godello is a white wine made by Adega Guímaro in the heart of D.O. Ribera Sacra.
Adega Guímaro was built at the beginning of the century. Here, wines are produced in a traditional way. In 1991, a large refurbishment was carried out. It improved its conditions and the winery is as of today one of the standards of the D.O. Ribeira Sacra.
Adega Guímaro practices an organic agriculture,respectful with its environment, always advocating for the local varieties.
Guímaro Godello is a wine made mainly from Godello. It includes 25% of other white varieties as Treixadura, Torrontés, Loureiro and Albariño. These grapes come from plots located in the area of Amandi, on steep slopes at 300 and 500 metres of altitude. Once harvested, they go through cold maceration, 4-5 °C, for 20 hours. Pressed and settled, they are left to ferment in stainless steel deposits for 15-20 days, between 12 and 14 °C. Once the fermentation is finished, it is racked and left for 6 months on its lees.
Guímaro Godello is an honest, aromatic and balsamic wine. An elegant white with lots of character.

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.
