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.

The DO Ribeira Sacra is a region that perhaps paints one of the best pictures of heroic viticulture, having even been awarded recognition by CERVIM, the awarding body for this style of viticulture. The term ‘heroic viticulture’ refers to viticulture in areas that have a topography and soil conditions that complicate the work in the vineyards and make cultivating the vines and harvest a challenge. The region is home to an Atlantic climate, rivers as thermoregulatory agents, low rainfall, slate-schistose and granite soils, small sized plots and vineyards grown on steep slopes. The result is excellent wines with great personalities that truly express the dramatic and exciting nature of the landscape.
