  1. Jozef Schildermans, I was found this news from a Spanish news paper. I was really disappointed when I was read this news. I couldn’t understand why polish don’t complete investigate quickly?

  2. Thank you for your reply,,, The local Galician newspaper I usually read did not have this story. I have been several times to Guímaro and have met Pedro and his mother. I cannot think why someone would want to “attack” this family run business. It was a sad day when this happened.

  3. Living in the Ribeira Sacra wine region I am interested where this information about the vandalism has come from as I have not heard about this.

    Thank you.
