Created in 1970, Casa Blanca is one of the oldest domaine in the AOC. It consists of 10 hectares of carefully tended vines ranging in age from 70 to 100 years. Herve Levano, the current winemaker and co-owner, arrived in Banyuls in 1995 and bought shares in Casa Blanca in 2005. His goal, with vineyard manager Laurent Escapa - who has been with Casa Blanca since 1989 - is to make intense, flavorful wines that combine the best of traditional methods (i.e. wood aging) with the advantages of modern techniques (i.e. temperature control). Levano makes his sweet Red in the style of a Vintage Port, emphasizing the fresh fruit flavors in youth and meant for long aging.
