About Comalats

Eva Bonet, the formidable winemaker and mayor of L’Ametlla de Segarra in Catalunya, is the driving force behind Celler Comalats. As the La Marquesa de la Garnatxa, she passionately champions the grape Garnacha, showcasing her dedication to winemaking and the promotion of this unique variety. The winery, named after the wooded foothills surrounding the region, was a dream realized by Eva’s late father, Jaume Bonet, who sought to revive winemaking in the face of declining vineyards during the 70s.

Comalats stands out not only for its picturesque setting but also for its commitment to organic viticulture. The twelve hectares of clay and limestone are home to meticulously tended vines of Garnacha, Picapoll, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Certified by the Catalan Council of Ecological Agricultural Production, the vineyards are shielded from industrial pollution by their high altitude and remote location, offering pristine conditions for grape cultivation at 710m above sea level.

The Bonet family's connection to L’Ametlla de Segarra spans seven centuries, and Celler Comalats reflects their determination to revive winemaking traditions. Each bottle from Comalats tells a story—a narrative of a family's history, the challenges faced, and the triumphs achieved. Tasting their wines provides a unique opportunity to experience the essence of the modern day intertwined with the rich tapestry of the past, capturing the tension between tradition and innovation that defines Celler Comalats.
