Talk of Castro Ventosa, is speaking of a place but mostly about being rooted to earth are these people with some style, sober and discreet, outside shocks, trends and fleeting fashions, and only subject to cyclical and monotonous rhythm the passing of the seasons and the vineyard. Castro Ventosa in life gravitates around the earth, to the vineyard, the grape and fruit asu wine, which is only seen as the natural consequence of success at all stages but particularly in the strain itself.
Pictures and situation Castro Ventosa
Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
