PostHeaderIcon Ribera del Duero, Casajús Winery

In Quintana del Pidio, a few kilometers of Aranda del Duero (Burgos) is the family farm run by Jose Alberto Calvo Casajús. Following the family tradition and applying modern techniques of development we found Casajús winery in the heart of the Ribera del Duero.

We found a winery that produces its wines from the vines to bottling following a total dedication to making wines that once produced for own consumption, come now to join the select group of wines that are well recognized worldwide Ribera del Duero .

The wines this small winery produces José Alberto, not over 100,000 bottles, but give them all the characteristics of the Tinta del País which is cultivated in the area, and all the wine matured in oak barrels for aging and even a signature wine fermented and aged in large barrels, which is a delight for the senses.

The winery is on the same road of Quintana del Pidio, to the outskirts of town and features a reception, a lounge for tastings, a craft manufacturing with stainless steel tanks, bottling and labeling, and a room of about 200 barrels approximately, where all the wines mature that the winery produces.

I had the opportunity to taste the wine of the author of the 2008 directly from the barrel, a wine produced in 100% the same, with an ingenious system where the barrel rolls over itself, and with a tap to make pumping and fermentation and will foster their own pace.

This was my first visit to the Ribera del Duero and I found a farm which is carried by one person with a very characteristic and traditional wines.
