Type of wine
Designation of origin
Do Terra Alta
Style of Wine
Intense amber gold (yellowish orange).
Nuts, fresh balsamic notes, toasted notes and with a fig liqueur finish.
Unctuous attack, balanced mouth, fresh, dry finish with a touch of bitterness.
Unique rancio dessert wine, made with lees over fifty years old and aged in the sun for ten years. Unctuous, syrupy but fresh and lively, with wonderful aromatic expression: fig liqueur, nuts, toasted notes and balsamic.
Nuts, cheeses, chocolate, candied fruit.
The rancio wines made at our cooperatives are absolutely spectacular. Take this specific case, a rancio aged in barrels on lees with half a century of history and, to round it off, aged for a further ten years in demijohns. Fabulous. It's excellent for pairing with certain desserts, but if you want to expand your sensations and knowledge, enjoy with a delicious platter of soft cheeses. Wow!
In the vineyard
Made with grapes from old vines that are cut back during the very dry and hot summers. Dry clay soil with a good lime content. Poor in organic matter but well drained.
In the winery
White wine aged in oak and chestnut barrels on lees over 50 years old and aged in the sun for 10 years.
Cooperativa De Gandesa
On 19 February 1919, José Maria Sierras, founder and first chairman of the cooperative, and Jaume Fontanet, member of the board, commissioned the architect César Martinell, a disciple of the great architects Josep Puig i Cadafalch and Antoni Gaudi, to construct the Bodega Cooperativa de Gandesa, then called the Gandesa Agricultural Cooperation Union.
Do Terra Alta
The so-called Customs of Orta (1296) and Miravet (1319) already regulated the sale of wine from the region. But it wasn't until the late nineteenth century that winegrowing became widespread. With the phylloxera plague, the demand from producers for DO Terra Alta  grapes increased, first from the French and then from the neighbouring regions that today are DO Tarragona and DOQ Priorat. In the early twentieth century, the organisation of cooperatives was a revolution.
