Founded in 1972, Viñedos y Bodegas Gormaz is a winery with a long track record in the Ribera del Duero region, where it formed part of the first group of wine producers to receive official certification there. Although moves were afoot as early as 1980, it was not until 1982 that the Ribera del Duero Region was officially approved and founded with 12 wineries registered, one of which was Viñedos y Bodegas Gormaz.The region’s climate enjoys moderate to low rainfall, dry hot summers and long hard winters, which puts it firmly within the Mediterranean continental category. This environmental uniformity is particularly dominant along its entire axis, namely the Douro River, which not only gives the region its name, but also, in crossing its northern highlands, unites over 100 towns and villages and 279 wineries contained within a winegrowing area measuring some 115 km long by 35 wide.

Winemaking

Grape selection since estates, vineyard´s age and maturation degree. Previous to the fermentation the grapes are macerated for 3 days at a temperature of 4- 6ºC in order to get the full extraction of aromas. Fermentation at a controlled temperature of 28ºC for 10 days. After the fermentation process the wine is macerated for 2 weeks in order to complete the extraction of the polyphenols. After the malolactic fermentation done in new French Oak barrels the wine is aging in French (70%) and American (30%) Oak barrels, new (70%) and first use for 24 months, being then rounded in the bottle for at least 12 months.
