O Guadiana não foge a esta visão e é por isso que se diz que nasce nas lagoas de Ruidera, na Mancha (Espanha) onde, de facto, se situam as suas cabeceiras mais recuadas, a pouco mais de oitocentos quilómetros da foz (1).
O Guadiana sofreu este efeito, tendo vindo a fazer recuar tal desnível, numa luta que só terá fim nas suas cabeceiras, daqui a muitos, muitos anos.
E é assim que o Guadiana alimenta e engrossa o caudal à custa de toda a pluvisosidade que cai na sua enorme bacia.

During the 19th and 20th century, the province of Extremadura began to produce Ribera del Guadiana, primarily in Tierra de Barros.
In the last few years, enormous investments have been made in the wine sector in Extremadura, substituting the grape pressing systems, installing refridgeration to control fermentation, and constructing wine cellars for better aging processes.
These changes have lead to the production of the wines that we enjoy today, fruit of the work of centuries ago, but with all of the technology of modern day.
