About our winery:
From our birth, Raíz de Guzmán has been always characterized by showing a marked respect for the origins, as expressed in our name. Origins both in the strain as in the knowledge and experience are reflected in all the people who take part of our family.
In the winery “Raíz de Guzmán” we produce wines from different vineyards located in the D.O. Ribera de Duero characterized by excellent terroir properties, weak soil with abundant gravel, situated in a high altitude between 750 and 1.000 meters.
All our wines are made with Tempranillo Grape and the wines are aged in oaks renewed every three years. We count with 80% French oak and 20% American oak. Our average annual production has a total of 120,000 bottles.
Three things to love about us:
We were born as the cheese factory "Páramo de Guzmán" making artisan old "Churra" sheep cheese. Which minimun curing of 12 months using only unpasteurized milk.
Páramo de Guzmán, adored by Frank Sinatra and Fidel Castro, to name a few, is a real gourmet product. Considered one of the best cheeses on the global stage by the most prestigious national and international competitions, and protagonist of the best seller "THE TELLING ROOM" by the American writer Michael Paternity.
The quality of our strains, the stripping, the careful selection of grapes and special fermentations are some of the hallmarks of our winery.
What makes us unique:
The uniqueness of our wines comes thanks to a careful manual process and ageing in small quantities. The result is powerful, refined wines endowed with a unique personality through unique aromas and flavors.
