Overview of the Wine
Casal de Armán was founded in the late 1990’s by the González family, who had been making Ribeiro wines since the 19th century. Located in San Andres, Ribadavia Ourense in Galicia, the winery property is actually an 18th century court.
They have 50 acres of vineyards located within the Ribeiro de Avia region, dedicated to cultivating indigenous varieties such as Treixadura, Godello, Loureira, Brencellao, Caíño and Sousón. The Avia’s river banks support the winery’s terraces with heights ranging from 650-1,200 feet above sea level. The grapes are hand-picked, and all of their wines are estate produced. Sustainable Farming practices are used.
Winemaker Felicísimo Pereira is also the new Ribeiro Appellation’s president.

Hand-harvested; cold maceration is followed by fermentation at low temperatures in stainless steel. Aged in stainless until bottling the following summer. Fresh, vivid, and bright on the palate, with notes of exotic fruits and a beautiful minerality. Lovely purity of fruit; a touch of spiciness in the finish.
