Casa del Blanco VP

Casa del Blanco was established as Vino de Pago in 2010. It is located at Manzanares (Ciudad Real, Castile-La Mancha).

After 20 years of research and different grape varieties restructuring; nowadays Pago Casa del Blanco has 9 varieties, 2 of them are for white wine (Sauvignon Blanc y Chardonnay) and 7 for red wine (Merlot, Tempranillo, PetitVerdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shyra, Malbec, Cabernet Franc).

The Pago Casa del Blanco Winery installations take up a total surface of 4,200 m2 divided in two areas perfectly fused: Production Zone and Leisure and Social Zone. The winery has been designed to work with relatively small grape and wine volumes, with mobile equipments and devices instead of fixed installations. The epicentre of the Leisure and Social Zone is a typically wide courtyard from La Mancha, with side colonnade and a big central waterwheel dated in the last century. Here the winery technological modernity touches combine with tradition in order to enjoy its wines: QuiXote, Veoveo, Tristas, Mente, dMente and Pilas Bonas.
