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

In recent years, winemakers and developers have settled in the DO Bierzo with very plausible innovative ideas, investing heavily in local wineries, resulting in the production of personal and unique wines. There is no doubt that El Bierzo has become a trendy and cool D.O, aided by the spicy, delicate and velvety Mencia grape, whose character and great capacity of expression of terroir is undoubtedly the regions best asset. Even many compare it to the Pinot Noir, which together with the small scale style of production and topography of its vineyards, the traditional form of the Burgundian bottle used, and the original use of the names of towns and places in their best wines, resulted in this wine region being given the nickname of "little Spanish burgundy".
