Thémera is the brand created by the Spanish winemaker Jorge González Granado. He has worked as a winemaker for more than 20 years in wineries with these Certificates of Origin: Ribera del Duero, Rioja, Rias Baixas, Rueda and Ribeira Sacra.

This brand was created in 2000 to make ageing wines with Ribeira Sacra Certificate of Origin. Those wines were marked then by Robert Parker in Wine Spectator with 90-92 (2004-2005 vintages).

The word "Thémera" was found by the winemaker González Granado in an ancient Galician encyclopaedia. It refers to a mythical figure that looks like a cat and a human being. In 2016 Thémera announced the wine Thémera Tinto Roble with Ribera del Duero Certificate of Origin. Later that year, Thémera Tinto Crianza was launched. In 2017 Thémera announced the second brand Madreselvas en Flor with a rosé. In last quarter 2017 Thémera launched Madreselvas en Flor Tinto Joven.
