Life is meant to be lived
with passion

We infuse passion into everything we do

At Casar de Burbia, we believe in doing things right and authentically.

All our wines come from indigenous grapes grown in our own vineyards located in various areas of Valtuille de Arriba, one of the most esteemed regions in El Bierzo.

We nurture our vineyards through certified organic viticulture, incorporating principles of regenerative and biodynamic viticulture, yielding high-quality grapes used in crafting all our wines.

We create wines with their own identity, wines that captivate with every sip and elevate the El Bierzo wine region while honoring its essence.

We build a legacy designed to endure through time, based on three pillars:

Organic Viticulture

We cultivate the land as our ancestors did, preserving soils, indigenous varieties, fauna, and the environment. In doing so, we conserve and enhance the identity of El Bierzo to achieve the utmost expression in Casar de Burbia wines.

We practice organic and biodynamic viticulture, replacing herbicides and systemic products with sustainable techniques. We cultivate and care for our vineyards to keep them healthy and robust, respecting the natural balance of the ecosystem.

All Casar de Burbia wines are certified organic, but we go beyond merely complying with EU regulations. We aim to avoid the use of any products that, though permitted in organic farming, are detrimental to soils and the environment.

Casar de Burbia wines are organic wines.

Research and Development (R&D)

Observing, investigating, experimenting, and continually reinventing ourselves is the only way to progress and evolve in the world of wine to create ever-better wines.

Since the inception of our project in 1989, at Casar de Burbia, we have been implementing changes in our work processes based on accumulated experience and research into all factors and processes influencing the production of our wines.

Understanding our vineyard soils better is crucial for caring for and maintaining our vines’ health, as well as obtaining quality grapes that express each plot’s identity. Researching the influence of indigenous yeasts versus commercial yeasts in wines or experimenting with indigenous lees during the aging of red and white wines helps us recover natural winemaking processes to create wines that reflect authentic El Bierzo.

In-depth study of the Mencía grape variety allows us to make adjustments in fermentation and aging techniques to create red wines with different organoleptic profiles.

Passion for El Bierzo

We love El Bierzo, we are passionate about its landscapes, its mountains, its vineyards, its beauty, its purity… That’s why one day we decided to buy vineyards in the Bierzo mountains, build a winery, and invest in highlighting this wonderful wine region.

Through Casar de Burbia wines, we aim to express the pure essence of El Bierzo.

We cultivate the vineyards and craft our wines as they were made in the past, embracing tradition, naturally, without haste, and with good ingredients.

For this purpose, we rely on the best old vines from the Bierzo mountains, a total of 27 hectares of vineyards that we have been regenerating since 1989, grafting the original and indigenous Mencía grape variety.

When crafting our wines, we use indigenous yeasts from our own grapes instead of commercial yeasts that do not contribute to the wines’ origin or identity.

Additionally, we conduct long macerations with the grape skins, replace pump-overs with manual punch-downs, and age the wines using natural lees and untoasted wooden barrels, respecting the grapes and avoiding masking their true identity.

Years of cultivating, researching, and nurturing the vineyard have allowed us to become deeply acquainted with El Bierzo.

And since we have our own vineyards spread across different areas, each contributing distinct characteristics and nuances to the wines, at Casar de Burbia, we were pioneers in creating
“Vinos de Paraje” (Single Vineyard Wines). Even before their formal existence, we were producing NEMESIO, TEBAIDA Nº5, and CASTAÑAL, wines from three different “parajes” in
Valtuille de Arriba.

In Casar de Burbia’s “Vinos de Paraje,” you can discover different expressions of the most authentic El Bierzo and let yourself be seduced by unique wines with highly differentiated profiles.
