Escoda-Sanahuja

Where to start with the legends that is are behind Escoda-Sanahuja? Unapologetically big personalities, unapologetically awesome wines. Vigneron Joan Ramon began making his magical wine in 1997, caring for his vineyard without chemicals from the start. This evolved over time to Biodynamic practices which have been the standard since 2003. In 2007 Joan and Carmen called it off with additional SO2 haven't looked back. The land spreads over 10ha near Montblanc in Catalunya which along with the vines is used for olives, almonds, vegetables and their animals.

Mendall

Laureano Serres makes wines as natural as they come. After a career in IT, he moved back to his native Catalunya to head up the local wine cooperative until his dreams of producing natural wines became to radical for the cooperative and they showed him the door. Happily for us, this prompted Laureano to start his own winery, making wines his way. He started out in his own cellar in El Pinell de Brai in Tarragona, and now makes a large range of wines with nothing added at all from his 6ha of low yielding vines. He vinifies the grapes in a small cellar which is under his home in the village.

Potron Minet

Jean-Sébastien Gion lives and loves near the city of Perpignan in Rousillon. He loves to be in the vineyard, listening to his vines, trying to detect what they need, a practice he learnt, no doubt from his former teacher Thierry Puzelat in Loire. In the winery, Jean-Sébastien tries to craft wines that are as close to nature as possible, often without any added SO2.
