Casar de Burbia Top Products
The winemakers at Casar de Burbia focus on two main varietals, Godello and Mencia. They also make select special blends.
Their focus on perfecting and specializing in just a few varieties has led their wines to be of extremely high quality and makes them a delicious choice for casual drinkers and sommeliers alike.
Godello is a white wine that balances bold aromas of ripe peaches, mangos, and pink fruit with crisp floral notes. The wine’s palate pairs well with salads and cheese just as easily as it does with veggies, poultry, and fish.
Aged in French Oak barrels, Mencia is a vibrant and spicy medium-bodied red wine full of complex aromas of ripe red and black fruits. Subtle notes of geranium and violet finish this wine with a brilliant acidity that pairs well with rich stews, grilled meats, and charcuterie.
