Today ‘The World’… tomorrow ‘The Universe’

Not satisfied with the recommendation of Casal Caeiro Barrica in ‘El Mundo’, we have now progressed to the recommendation of ‘El Universal’, who have written about our unoaked Casal Caeiro. Just to clarify, El Mundo is of course a daily newspaper here in Spain, whereas El Universal is one of Venezuela’s most well-respected daily newspapers.
In his column Carpe Vinum (which I believe means Seize the Wine) the journalist Vladimir Viloria wrote about Albarino – “The albariño is the best white wine of Spain. It´s always fantastically fresh. It´s crisp acidity, it´s intense nose, filled with flowers and white fruits and unique mineral background – character only possible in the microclimate of the Rias Baixas”.
In referring to our own Casal Caeiro he went on to say – “Balanced citric acidity with a background of ripe white melon, and a slight prickle that leaves the palate clean and ready for the next sip. We have in front of us a very well-made wine that expresses all the typicity and expression of the grape variety”
