The Revival of Spain’s Ancient Vineyards in Sierra de Gredos

Comando G, a winery producing biodynamic wines from old vines in the Sierra de Gredos region of Spain, is with a handful of other area producers leading the charge in showing the world how distinctive the wines from this region can be. Sierra de Gredos is made up of three valleys with very different climates: continental in the northern Alto Alberche, and Mediterranean in the southern Alberche and Tiétar.

Daniel Gómez Jiménez-Landi and Fernando Garcia spearhead Comando G’s biodynamic effort with unique Garnachas from the Sierra de Gredos foothills. Producing six cuvées—five reds from 100 percent Garnacha and a white, ‘El Tamboril’, from Garnacha Gris and Garnacha Blanco—Comando G structures its portfolio around Burgundy’s hierarchical Cru system.

Garnacha is one of the most widely planted grape varieties in Spain, and is regarded as the most important grape variety in many regions, including in the Sierra de Gredos.
