Nestled in the heart of a 30 hectare wine state, La Casa de las Uvas exudes a feeling of peace and tranquility hard to find in the modern world. Situated between Ourense and Ribadavia, the XVII Pazo is the ideal base from which to explore this famous wine-producing region. The property boasts its own biodynamic vineyards home of the Internationally acclaimed wine A Pita Cega. The 17th century known as Pazo de Sabariz, is listed as a historic monument and is now an exceptional family residence.
Our vineyards lie at a height of 500 m (1,300 feet) above the River Miño near the 2nd century BC Celtic settlement and later Roman fort of Lansbricae. The remains of amphoras found in the area suggest that wine was exported to Rome even then. The estate is ringed by mountains, which protect the vines in wintertime and ensure an Atlantic-Mediterranean climate with average annual temperatures of 14ºC and rainfall of more than 1,000 mm per year. Summers are hot and usually dry. The soil is made up of largely recent formations above a bed of very hard mother rock, basically consisting of very ancient granites from the Hercynian period and large amounts of quartz. This produces an unusual “granite" viticulture based on acidic, loose, well-oxygenated soil that produces a fresh wine with a bouquet made up of orange blossom, acacia, vines, Claudia plums and apricot with citrus and other aromatic notes.
