Casa Beal:
Sant Julia de Loria (Andorra)

Casa Beal is the name of a winery belonging to the Visa-Tor family who have brought wine production back to Andorra after more than a century. This winery started up in 1988, but it was not until 2006 that its first wine was released on the market, Cim de Cel. The vineyards are at an altitude of between 1,050 and 1,100 metres, which makes them unique, because there are few vineyards planted in Europe over the 1000m mark. This is biodynamic viticulture, which involves applying different techniques in the vineyard according to lunar phases to achieve a balanced maturity for the fruit.

Among the grape varieties grown by the firm is Gewürztraminer, which is ideally suited to the local conditions of light soil on slate and bedrock. As with all their wines, the final product is a top quality white with environmental guarantees.

To make their wine, only the best grapes are fed along the conveyor to the press, and the vineyard's own laboratory's ensures tough quality control throughout the manufacturing process. Cim de Cel has received praise internationally. The lack of humidity during maturity concentrates and preserves the aromatic potential of the grapes, and achieves a balance between sugar and acidity. The result is a wine of the highest quality. There is a hint of exotic fruit, such as lychee, and a floral aroma reminiscent of rose petals. Individuals and group visits can be booked in advance.
