Where The Wines Come From


Nestled in the northeastern corner of Spain, Catalonia is a region steeped in history, culture, and winemaking tradition, where natural wine has found a vibrant and welcoming home. With its diverse terroir encompassing coastal plains, rolling hills, and soaring mountains, Catalonia offers an ideal environment for cultivating a wide array of grape varieties, including Garnacha, Carinyena, and Xarel·lo. Natural winemakers in Catalonia are dedicated to preserving the region's biodiversity and heritage, employing organic and biodynamic practices in the vineyard and minimal intervention techniques in the cellar. By allowing grapes to ferment spontaneously with native yeasts and eschewing additives, they craft wines that reflect the unique terroir of Catalonia—expressing lively acidity, nuanced minerality, and a true sense of place. Catalonia's natural wines span a spectrum of styles, from crisp sparkling Cava to bold reds, each bottle a testament to the region's rich cultural tapestry and unwavering commitment to quality and sustainability. Whether sipping a refreshing rosé along the Costa Brava or savoring a complex Priorat red in the shadow of Montsant, Catalonia's natural wines offer a taste of the region's soul and a glimpse into its storied winemaking heritage.
