Somdinou evokes the origins of the Cooperativa Gandesa, built in 1919. The name reflects the fact that the members joined forces to build the key to the future. Wines influenced by the DO Terra Alta soils, using traditional varieties. They're wines made from middle-aged vineyards, full-bodied, lively, complex and with mainly Mediterranean aromas.

In this world, there are many pleasures. Can you imagine a platter of cold cuts with a great selection of soft cheeses? Well, if you combine that with this young red wine, you'll find the perfect pairing. And that isn't too easy these days! You'll be wowed by its freshness and its ability to enhance certain dishes. Oh, and make sure you try it with more elaborate dishes, such as a good fricassee or a Tastingy roast. Mouthwatering!
In the vineyard
Made with grapes from old vines belonging to the members of the cooperative. The cultivated soils generally have a medium texture with good drainage and variable depth, while they're rich in limestone rocks and poor in organic matter.
In the winery
Fermented and macerated in stainless steel tanks for approximately 20-25 days at 25°C, pressing and subsequent malolactic fermentation for about 30 days. Part of the wine is aged in French and American oak barrels for 3-4 months.
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.
