Ramon Do Casar

1928

BORN ON THE BANKS OF THE RIVER MIÑO

Ramón González Figueiredo was born in Ourense in Spain’s Galicia province in 1928, at a time when the liberal democracies were in crisis, fascism and authoritarian regimes were on the rise, and there was an upsurge of labour movements inspired by the Bolshevik victory in Russia. Ramón's childhood and early working life were spent in a society as tumultuous as those Galician lands, sweeping alongside the banks of the River Miño. Growing up with his family in a typical farmhouse, which in those days was referred to as a "casar", Ramón was oblivious to the recovery after the Great War and the economic euphoria of the 20's, cut short by the Wall Street Crash in 1929…
1955

ECONOMIC DIFFICULTIES AT HOME AND A BETTER LIFE ABROAD

Galicia is said to be the land with the highest percentage of emigrants, but also the land with the highest number of emigrants who, at some point, decide to return. Unaware of this, Ramon emigrated to Venezuela in 1955 in pursuit of his dream. At that time, Galicians, including Ramón, were emigrating for two main reasons: economic difficulties at home and the hope for a better life abroad. He therefore travelled to the other side of the Atlantic where, through long, hard work, he was able to go about acquiring small farms back in his homeland.

THE DREAM SETTING IN SAN SALVADOR DE VIDE

Vineyards, arable land and meadows, copses, chestnut groves and other shrubs... Veiga Bella, the property acquired by Ramon and his family on 2 March 1976, came with 217 "ferrados y tercio” of farm land, the equivalent of 16 hectares and 55 ares. The estate in San Salvador de Vide, a small parish in the district of Castrelo de Miño, was presided over by a two-storey house, along with another small house with two wine cellars and a raised granary. Neither house stands today. On this estate, bordered to the north by the River Miño, to the south by the old royal road which runs from Vide to Prado, and extending to the east as far as the River Fragoso flowing into the Miño River… a dream was born.

THE YEAR IN WHICH THE LAND BECAME VINEYARDS

For decades, the land remained fallow, as if it were waiting for the arrival of the new century in order to be clean again. Earth and stones were shifted and the first walls and revetments were built in preparation for the planting of a vineyard intended for the production of the highest quality wine. A planting frame of 2.50 by 1.25 metres was adopted which, although it results in less efficient land utilization, ensures higher quality grapes by providing better ventilation, longer hours of sunshine, better accessibility for vineyard work and other factors associated with improved harvest quality.

A PROJECT ROOTED IN GALICIAN TRADITION

Each of us decides the place where our dreams will be lived out. Ramón and his family decided their’s would be in a winery devised to protect and bring out the nobility of the wines produced within its walls. Its building has been designed in keeping with local typology, seamlessly integrated into a special, unique environment, on a hillside on the banks of the River Miño, surrounded by its own vineyards. Rooted in Galician tradition, it assimilates the way in which the best white wines of Europe have been made in the Ribera del Miño for centuries.

A STORY OF VISION AND HARD WORK

Sometimes, you can still feel the presence of that Galician land where Ramón first toiled and which today is prime terroir for native grape varieties such as the Treixadura, Godello and Albariño, grown on the estate itself. The vineyards are managed according to the principles of integrated viticulture, which cares for the grapes and the environment, in a way that few other wineries do, employing practices that make the most of the grapes’ natural properties. The winemaking work is entrusted to Pablo Estevez, a young Galician oenologist with a proven track record and an exciting future ahead of him. The new wine is called Ramón do Casar, in memory of the humble farmhouse from which, one day, there emerged a man, Ramón, who is now the protagonist in a story of vision, hard work and wine.
