Production information

Producer: La Guita

The La Guita winery was founded by Domingo Perez Marin in 1852. Some say that the winery's name comes from the old Andalucian slang 'guita' meaning 'cash', as founder Domingo Perez Marin was well-known for preferring to be paid cash-in-hand. But the more likely explanation is that 'guita' means 'string' and this is referenced by the small piece of string that adorns every bottle - an homage to the brand's humble beginnings. Read more

Production note

After harvesting, the grapes are pressed, usually in the first half of September, to obtain the best quality free-run juice or “mosto de yema”. This very light delicate must is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to become Palomino still wine. The wines will be further lightly fortified to 15% ABV to enter the traditional ageing system of Criaderas y Solera. This is a fractional blending system in which younger wines are blended with older ones to provide a specific consistent style. The wine will be finally drawn to be bottled from the Solera level of casks which contains the oldest wines with an average age of 4/5 years.
