Top 10 winemakers to watch in Spain


Salvador-Guimera-GironChosen by Antonio Flores as one to keep an eye on in Jerez, 43-year-old Salvador Guimerá Girón works alongside Flores at González Byass as a winemaker and agricultural engineer.

“He knows the vineyard and the winery perfectly and is passionate about his job. He’s a very talented winemaker and takes a holistic approach from vine to glass,” says Flores.

The fair-haired Spaniard has worked for GB for the last decade and his winemaking philosophy is a simple one: “When it comes to making fine Sherries and brandies, you have to constantly seek to achieve maximum quality while respecting tradition, the vineyard and the environment,” he says, citing the concept of terroir as “fundamental” to his work and “becoming increasingly important”.

“In Jerez we talk about ‘pagos’ referring to the soil, microclimate and distinct conditions that a particular vineyard or single-estate imparts in a wine. It is from these single vineyard plots where great wine originates,” he says.
