The Wine

Rich color. Elegant, red fruit, cherry and currants, pure Mencía fragrance. Later the mineral component appears as earth and stone. Structured in the mouth, balanced and fresh, ends after a long palate. A clean, straightforward and deep wine.

Lamb and kid roasts, beef and game stews cooked in wine, grilled meats are some examples of the many other food preparations that are ideal to be paired with Pittacum Aurea, such as, and why not, fish cooked in their own juices. We recommend avoiding very hot spicy flavors.

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.
