The Wine

Intense color, elegant nose. Ripe black fruit, spices, tobacco, mineral. Unctuous mouthfeel with a long finish.

Pittacum’s profile allows for a rich and varied matching to dishes and foods: grilled or stewed meats, legume pottages, certain ways of prepare fish, but also cold meats, cheeses, pasta, empanadas (Galician savory pie), salads when properly dressed.

The Terras Gauda winery was founded in the O Rosal Valley, within the territory encompassing the Rías Baixas Denomination of Origin. The winery started with an initial production of 37,000 bottles from the 1990’s harvest. Currently we are commercializing more than 1.5 million bottles.

The Terras Gauda Group comprises of three wineries and one vegetable processing plant: Bodegas Terras Gauda, Viñedos y Bodegas Pittacum and Quinta Sardonia, and the A Rosaleira cannery.

The main goal of the Bodegas Terras Gauda winery is to make the highest quality wines, with their own distinctive personality that emanates from the local noble varieties when they are grown in ideal conditions and vinified according to the traditions of the region but with the most advanced technology and utmost care at all stages of the process.

In 2002 the Bodegas Terras Gauda acquired Bodegas Pittacum, located in the Bierzo Denomination of Origin region to make quality red wines from the grapes of this ancient vineyard and age them in oak barrels.

In 2010 we added the Quinta Sardonia winery, located in Sardón de Duero to the Group in order to create high range red wines from grapes grown according to biodynamic agricultural principles.
