In 2009, after a long career in food exportation, Joan decided to take on old vines from his wife’s family in Conca de Barberà along with some of his own family’s vines in Priorat and he set up Costador Terroirs Mediterrani.
Costador grow a wide range of indigenous Catalan varieties, some of which are almost extinct! The wines of Costador demonstrate how it is indeed possible to make terroirs expressing wines, with no additives, which are clean, elegant and sophisticated in style. Wines that express their region and grape varieties loudly, whilst still appealing to a broad range of palates, not just that of the more radical ‘natural’ crowd.
For this wine the grapes are fermented and macerated on skins in amphora for 6 weeks before being passed to old oak barrels and foudre for 6 months.
