'Siscu' (Francisco) Martí comes from a very long line of grape growers and winemakers which date back all the way to the original founders of Ca N'Estruc, located in the shadow of the Montserrat Mountains, west of Barcelona in Catalunya. He also is partner in Uvas Felices and Vila Viniteca, so it was a natural fit for the group to have wonderful wine from this northeastern region. Since 2012, the estate has been certified in organic agriculture, but since 2019 they have committed every ounce of their efforts towards bio-dynamic farming and philosophy throughout their 22 hectares of vines (as well as some small plots that they rent and manage). The soil is full of clay, limestone, and gravel, with a unique cooler microclimate than the 'normal' Mediterranean, due to the high mountains at their back. Without compromise, every grape cluster is hand harvested to ensure only perfect fruit comes to the cellar for spontaneous fermentation across the range. Mireia Viñals is in the cellar daily, raising her new babies each vintage, ensuring they express their varietal make up while remaining fresh and wonderful drinkable.
