WITH THE SAME HANDS.
FROM THE VINEYARD TO YOUR BOTTLE.
On loamy-sandy terrain, protected from the north by small mountains of pine and holm oak forest, we cultivate twenty hectares of vineyards, mainly of the indigenous variety Tinta del País, which is over fifty years old.
Traditional pruning work, our land and the microclimate of our area allow us to achieve the perfect balance between acidity, sweetness, graduation and flavor of the fruit at the time of harvest.
For generations, both families, Calvo and Casajús have cultivated the grapevine and elaborated their own artisan wines, which were produced for their own consumption in old cave style wineries that today, are still preserved.
The elaboration of the Casajús Wines responds to that old tradition and familiar dedication: the knowledge acquired during generations, which long ago were used for general consumption with more modern techniques but respecting these origins.
José Alberto was born in Quintana del Pidio. This small town is located on the foothills of the north side of the Duero Valley that shapes the appellation of Ribera del Duero. He had the privilege of growing up in the bosom of a winemaking family, thus.
