Ribadavia, Galicia, Northwest Spain – within the Ribeiro D.O.
Casal de Armán was founded in the late 1990’s by the González family, who had been making Ribeiro wines since the 19th century. The winery property is an 18th century court, located in San Andres, Ribadavia Ourense in Northwest Spain, Galicia.
Casal de Armán covers almost 50 acres of vineyards located within the Ribeiro de Avia region. The Avia’s river banks support the winery’s terraces with heights ranging from 650 feet above sea level to almost 1,200 feet above sea level.
The concern of the winemaker is to bring the grapes to the cellar in the best possible condition. This begins with organic practices and hand picking in the vineyards.
The vineyards are dedicated to cultivating indigenous varietals such as white Treixadura, Godello, Loureira, Brencellao, Caíño and Sousón. The grapes are handpicked and 100% of their wines are estate wines.
