Vineyards

The land where the Casar de Burbia vineyards grow are a key factor in the taste, aroma and body of our wines. The great amount of molybdenum in the soil comes from the slate, highly abundant in the area, which together with the iron, dyes the land red, making the wines of Casar de Burbia a true mineral explosion.
The vineyards are distributed into 42 different plots, grouped essentially into three levels: A, B and C. These levels are selected based on a series of common characteristics such as height, incline and the type of terrain (more or less stony). The combination of these factors give the grapes special features.

Godello: Spanish white grape produces wines of lean, clean minerality

“The Globe and Mail” By: BEPPI CROSARIOL

Godello – one can’t help but love the name, don’t you think? – sounds like the clumsier half of a comedy troupe or a character out of Cervantes or Shakespeare. “Pray, my good Godello, I beseech thee, descend from yonder oak and help me find my fair Penelope, for she is sweeter than any late-harvest riesling and more faithful than a monastery of blue nuns.”

If wine were in fact drama, godello might be closer to one of those born-again reptiles fromJurassic Park. The grape variety had declined to near-extinction by the 1970s, with just a few hundred vines to its cheerful name, according to Wine Grapes, the book by Jancis Robinson et al. Then a restoration effort was undertaken in its homeland of Galicia in northwest Spain, bringing its land coverage up to more than 1,000 hectares by 2008. It’s still a drop in the bucket compared with, say, chardonnay or cabernet sauvignon…
