Dolmo is as authentic as the mythical tree that grows along the banks of the Duero river. The elm (“olmo” in Spanish) is a majestic tree, and the ancient Greeks associated it with the god of wine, because its branches were used to hold up the shoots of the grapevines. Dolmo is a single-variety, 100% Tempranillo, with body and substance and with the fingerprint of our head winemaker. An elegant and personal, premium red wine, aged for 4 months in oak.
ABOUT VICENTE GANDIA
For 135 years we have devoted our efforts and resources to building a winery with a solid philosophy and an essence of its own. Our hallmarks are constant evolution, a focus on innovation and market trends, reinventing ourselves every day.
Our roots run deep in the best terroirs of the Valencian Community, with two estates: Hoya de Cadenas (in the Alta de Utiel Requena) and Casa Gallur (on the slopes of the Sierra de Mariola). Here we develop wines with the essence and DNA of Vicente Gandía, from the vine to your glass.
At Vicente Gandía we are firmly committed to protecting the environment and we work to ensure that our wines are the result of sustainable actions in all aspects of their cycle of life. To this end, we implement good environmental practices and mechanisms that ensure appropriate control over the use of natural resources, auxiliary materials and power sources involved in all the processes of developing, making and bottling wine and sparkling wine.
Among the main commitments aimed at the mitigation and control of significant environmental aspects, are:
+ Installation of two photovoltaic panels to optimize our electricity consumption.
+ Packaging reduction: Minimizing the weight of the bottles of our best-selling wines.
+ We purify 100% of the liquid effluents at our Hoya de Cadenas Estate, re-using them as irrigation water.
+ Proximity suppliers. We buy more than € 10 M in wines, grapes and must coming from rural areas, many of them at
serious risk of depopulation, thus managing to fix these farmers in their environment giving the people who live
there more opportunities.
+ Controls of greenhouse gas emission and specific measures to reduce the impact on climate change.
