Somdinou Blanc Fermentat En Bóta
Somdinou Blanco is a Garnacha Blanca wine made from nineteen specially selected old vines, which give the project its name. This is one of the most iconic wines from the Cooperativa Gandesa.
Type of wine
Garnatxa blanca, Macabeu
Designation of origin
Do Terra Alta
Style of Wine
Fine white wine
Pale yellow, clean and bright.
White blossom and ripe fruit, peach, very delicate toasted notes.
Ripe white fruit, great balance between wood and freshness. Elegant, with volume, silky and unctuous.
An amazing wine that explores the magnificent combination of the Garnacha Blanca from the Terra Alta with a subtle time spent in French oak barrels. White barrel-fermented and aged on lees.
Between 12 and 14 degrees
Great with pasta, in the broadest sense of the word, seafood rice dishes and oily fish.
Perfect for lovers of white wines (there are more of us every day), in this case complemented by barrel ageing, which gives it a very idiosyncratic touch. Can you imagine that feeling you get in your mouth when you try something that sounds something like a description of candy floss? Well, you might just get a similar feeling the first time you try this wine. The unctuousness that spreads throughout the mouth and that cleanses your palate after each bite gives it a very cool personality. One last recommendation: drink with a good salt-baked fish. Standing ovation, please!
In the vineyard
Grapes from specially selected old vines. Its name comes from the fact that the wine is made with grapes from the nineteen members of the cooperative.
In the winery
Controlled fermentation in French oak barrels for approximately 20 days at 16°C and subsequent ageing on lees for around 5-6 months with bâtonnage.
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.
