RIBERA DEL DUERO
For more than 2000 years the lands of the Ribera del Duero have been linked to the vine and wine production. This is shown by the largest Roman mosaic on the peninsula found in Baños de Valdearados (Burgos). In the 12th century the first cellars dug into the subsoil appeared and the wine and vineyards were the protagonists of the cultural and economic development of the area. In the XV century the first ordinances were created to control production and trade. After times of boom and others of decline, finally, in 1982 the Denomination of Origin Ribera del Duero was officially created.
Today, excellent wines are produced in our Denomination of Origin. The main factors for this are the high quality of the soils and the particular climate of this geographical area. The soil of the vineyards is composed of sand and pebbles, which is ideal for regulating the humidity of the deep roots of the plant and nourishing it. The climate is marked by significant temperature contrasts between summer and winter, even between day and night, especially at the time of fruit ripening. Both factors are decisive to obtain the best Tempranillo grape (also called Tinta del País, the best in Spain, originally from The Ribera del Duero and with more roots in the area) used in the production of Casajús wines.
QUINTANA DEL PIDIO
The municipality of Quintana del Pidio is located in the province of Burgos. It is surrounded by small mountains populated with oaks, holm oaks and pines that protect it from the cold north winds. The history of Quintana del Pidio is linked to its lands, its people and its traditions. And the surroundings are drawn by the gentle wind of its afternoons and the light and color of its vineyards.
