GREAT WINES START IN THE VINEYARD
VINEYARD & WINERY
The roots of Casar de Burbia, both the family’s and of our own vineyards, are deeply linked to the magical land that is El Bierzo.
As powerful as it is in diversity and tradition, our story begins in Valtuille de Arriba, a small wine-growing area in Vilafranca del Bierzo, León, in northwestern Spain bordering Galicia.
All the vineyards owned by Casar de Burbia are located in the area of the Valtuille de Arriba mountain, alongside the Camino de Santiago. We have 26 hectares of mountain vineyards, which we always work manually according to the soil conditions. The vineyards have been converted to organic, and treatments have been reduced to a minimum in recent years.
The general characteristics of our vineyards correspond to the mountain slope typology (15-35%) where they are located.
From the very beginning Casar de Burbia decided to invest in micro-vinifications, since we knew that this is the only way we could really understand the potential of each of our vineyards.
