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.

Terra Alta, Garnacha Blanca, Macabeo, old vines, history and work of a century-old cooperative. What could go wrong? Well, obviously nothing. You'll love this wine as it will whisk you off to the heart of the vineyard with its floral aromas. You'll see how the bottle empties faster than you'd like. It's very mellow, really easy to drink and a great companion for summery dishes, but also perfect by the glass before a meal. And keep an eye on the recommended temperature, as if it's too cold, you'll miss out on lots of things in the nose and on the palate!
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 in stainless steel tanks for approximately 20 days at 16°C. Aged on lees for about a month.
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.
