This juicy Loire-inspired red has a slightly different blend each vintage. This year is Cabernet franc, Grenache, Carignan and Merlot. With notes of cassis and sour black cherries, grilled herbs, and roasted peppers it takes you straight to the Mediterranean.

About Escoda-Sanahuja

Charmingly hirsute, hippyish Joan-Ramon Escoda started his winery in 1997, in Conca de Barberà a little known winegrowing area southwest of Barcelona. The project grew from his dream to create pure natural wines and practice biodynamic agriculture.

Biodynamics emphasises a farm as a self-sustaining whole: Joan-Ramon's vines grow next to olives and almonds; he keeps cows, horses and chickens enabling him to meet his compost needs ‘in-house’; and plants vegetation between the vine rows to encourage biodiversity. In the winery he works minimally saying he wants to “respects the fruit to the maximum”. And since 2007 he has stopped using sulphites. These are highly individual wines reflecting their origins and their innovative winemaker.
