In the 1940’s, the family patriarch, Nemesio Fernández Bruña, entered a wine barrel as a child to clean it – since only the smallest could fit through the narrow opening-. Once inside, he heard the echo of his voice as he sang, inaugurating the first of many magnificent experiences in the world of wine.
In 1989, Nemesio decided to make his dream come true and began acquiring old vineyards in el Bierzo, where he had been living for some time. He took a chance buying parcels in the mountain; an area which in that time everyone was abandoning due to the grapes’ elevated production costs in addition to its low price. Today CASAR DE BURBIA boasts an estate divided into 52 parcels that total 27 hectares.
