DID YOU KNOW?

  • In 1995 there were barely half a dozen vineyards left in Gordoncillo, and winegrowing was dying out. That same year, 101 wine growers came together to reconvert the old unproductive vineyards into sustainable use. In 2002 the new winery was set up. Thanks to that, Gordoncillo has definitively regained its winegrowing past.
  • The Prieto Picudo variety has traditionally been used for the production of young and very aromatic pétillant rosé wines. These days, it produces vintage red wines of great quality.
  • The Albarín grape is a sweet, muscatel type, and is very aromatic, with floral and citrus notes. Although usually associated with young wines, it has shown excellent results when aged in the barrel.

Suggestions

  • VINEYARD TOUR. GORDONZELLO offers individual visitors two routes through the vineyards, signed with information boards, for walking, by bicycle or car, aided by a map supplied by the winery. The area has a special scenic beauty, combining traditional crop plains with the banks of the river Cea, which flows past the vineyards along the south.
  • Do you fancy combining wine tourism and sport? Since 2012, GORDONZELLO has organised the popular annual ENTRECEPAS (among the vines) race, which in 2016 takes place on 12 June. After the 10 km route through the vineyards, we offer you a great paella party, followed by a visit and tasting at the winery.
  • GORDONZELLO also suggests that you visit at harvest time, when special visits are organized.
