Finca Valdeolmos is a red wine made by Goyo García Viadero, in Gumiel de Mercado, D.O. Ribera del Duero.
Years ago, Goyo García Viadero decided to set out on a different path to that of the family winery, Valduero. Seeking the authenticity of native varieties in Castilla León, he restored old vineyards and reclaimed traditional practices in the vineyard rather than make use of modern viticultural techniques, which abuse herbicides and pesticides. He avoids using enzymes, non-native yeasts and conservatives in the winery.
This has led him to winemaking in three different areas: Ribera del Duero (Olmedillo de Roa, Villanueva de Gumiel and Anguix), in Cantabria in Valle del Liébana (Pumareña and Los Cos) and in Ribera del Arlanza.
Finca Valdeolmos is an estate situated in Villanueva de Gumiel (Burgos) at an altitude of 890 metres. It experiences a continental climate and the vines are planted on sandy stone soils with limestone. Tinta Fina grapes are mixed in the vineyard with a little Albillo.
It is harvested manually and ferments for 10-15 days with maceration for 3 weeks and an ageing period of 16 months in extrafine grain barrels from Burgundy. It is not stabilised or filtered.
Finca Valdeolmos is a mature and elegant wine, that respects the fruit and emphasises the freshness of the Albillo grape.
