Characteristics of Hombros

Hombros is a red wine from Bierzo prepared by Casar de Burbia. It is a single variety of Mencia. Hombros is made from grapes from old vines between 50 and 100 years old, from selected plots on the 27 acres of property owned by the winery.

Most of these are located on slopes at a minimum altitude of 600 metres. The terroir contains slate, clay, aluminium and iron, typical elements of the area.

The vines are enhanced by pruning the grapes that are on top, which are called "Hombros." Hence the name of the wine.

Hombros grapes are harvested manually and then pass through a press that follows the traditional artisanal methods.

Hombros also undergoes a controlled fermentation at high temperatures of about 25° in deposits with 10,000 litres of capacity.

Finally, Hombros spends a minimum of 12 months in French Allier oak barrels and American oak barrels.

Casar de Burbia is a family project started in the 80s by Nemesio Fernandez, who then acquired virtually abandoned old vineyards.

The family has lovingly worked the land to recover it and produces great wines today. Today it is managed by the second generation who are in charge of the project.

Reviews

D.O. Bierzo

Winery Casar de Burbia

The Designation of Origin Bierzo is located in a clearly separated region in the western province of Leon. It occupies a tectonic hollow or depression surrounded by important mountain formations (Montes de León and Cantabrian Mountains), slightly open to the southwest along the valley of the river Sil, which allows a clear Atlantic influence that provides climate traits with advantages both from the Mediterranean and from the Atlantic climate at once: mild temperatures, high solar radiation and good water supply.
