In the year 2000 Adega Casal Novo was set up by five associates working on vineyards inherited by one of its members. Their aim was to produce small quantities of wines of high quality. Located in Rubia, in the high lands of Valdeorras, the soil is a combination of silt and slate, ideal for white `mineral like` wines. With a climate of long days of sunshine and temperate temperatures, they are able to produce this stunning wine.
