Guímaro, rebel and nonconformist

Pedro and Isaac at Guímaro
These are somehow most important  features of Pedro Rodriguez, the " alma mater of the winery ," who confesses that this is the meaning that lies behind the brand that is revolutionizing the way of making wine since its inception in the early nineties; and that's the character he wants to give to their wines.

When you meet Pedro at first in his winery, which attracts attention is what a warm and friendly he is, as well as his simplicity and generosity. Since the first moment conveys his enthusiasm for making wine, and for the innovation. He started in the world of law, but fortunately for wine lovers, twisted his career (as he says) .

Y así es Pedro Rodríguez, el “alma mater de la bodega”, quien nos confiesa que ese es el significado que se oculta tras esa marca capaz de revolucionar la manera de elaborar vino desde sus inicios a comienzos de los noventa; y ese es el carácter que quiere imprimir a sus vinos...  

Cuando conoces a Pedro en su bodega llaman la atención su cercanía, su simpatía, así como su sencillez y generosidad. Desde el primer instante transmite su entusiasmo por hacer vino, y por innovar.  Él se inició en el mundo del derecho, pero afortunadamente para los amantes del vino, su carrera se torció (como él mismo dice).

Cinco Tintos Gallegos - Five Galician Red Wines

Cinco Vinos Tintos Gallegos – Five Galician Red Wines

Cinco Tintos Gallegos


Son vinos de trago largo, donde la fruta destaca sobre la madera; y la acidez, aunque integrada, está presente de manera notoria.
Viticultores que buscan en sus vinos la esencia del concepto “terroir”, y con ello transmitir  las sensaciones de la  tierra de la que proceden. Recuperan modos de producción tradicionales, donde el entorno y el respeto al medio ambiente son prioritarios. La agricultura biodinámica es una constante en todos ellos. El concepto de vinos de autor es común a todos ellos.
Los vinos que se probaron son: Quinta da Muradella (Alanda, 2008) de la D.O. Monterrei, Alan de Val (Pedrazais, 2012) de la D.O. Valdeorras, 30 Copelos (Lagar do Merens, 2012) de la D.O. Ribeiro, Zárate (Loureiro, 2011) de la D.O. Rías Baixas Salnés, y Algueira (Pizarra 2011) de la D.O. Ribeira Sacra. (Leer Más).......

These producers recover traditional methods of production, where the environment and respect for the soil are priority. Biodynamic farming is a constant in all of them, as far as the concept of author´s wine is also common to all.
