The Producer

About Amós Bañeres

Amós Bañeres, a former pharmacist, embarked on a transformative journey from the confines of urban life to reconnecting with nature through winemaking. Inspired by a year-long sailing adventure with his family, he transitioned to viticulture, drawn by a generational legacy of farming and a desire to work outdoors. Returning to school in Tarragona to study winemaking, he honed his craft and eventually took over his family's small vineyard parcels. Rejecting conventional methods, Amós blends rational knowledge with a spiritual connection to produce exceptional micro Cuvées, a testament to his dedication to quality and reverence for nature.

About the Region

Penedès, Spain

In the sun-kissed region of Penedès, nestled in Catalonia, Spain, a growing community of winemakers is embracing the principles of natural winemaking with passion and dedication. Here, amidst the rolling hills and Mediterranean breezes, vintners like Maria Solé and Jordi Torres are leading the charge, cultivating vineyards with organic and biodynamic practices to produce grapes of exceptional quality and character. In the cellar, they practice minimal intervention, allowing the grapes to ferment with native yeasts and refraining from additives, fining, or filtration. The result is a portfolio of vibrant and expressive wines that capture the true essence of Penedès—wines that reflect the region's terroir, history, and spirit with every sip, offering a taste of Catalonia's natural wine revolution.
