Wines elaborated by our family after years of history lived alongside each wine and each grape variety. These are wines that tend to go against the grain, created in spite of trends, and which sometimes succeed in setting them.

* The Demeter seal guarantees that a wine has been produced following biodynamic methods. At Gramona, it relates to both the growing of the grapes and the winemaking.

ORGANIC & BIODYNAMIC VITICULTURE

Based on careful observation and the management of the factors which influence our terroir and its habitat. We do not apply chemical herbicides or pesticides, but instead we use natural resources, with the primary aim of maintaining a balance in the environment, and we preserve spontaneous ground cover in order to obtain spongy soils.
Through biodynamics, which goes one step beyond organic growing, we breathe life into our vineyards and seek to raise levels of biodiversity: we preserve spontaneous ground cover in order to obtain spongy soils, we apply plant-based infusions and decoctions to avoid pest infestations, and we produce our own animal and vegetal compost from our orchard of medicinal plants and our farm of cows, sheep, chickens, and horses.

PRODUCTION

The grapes come from the states Mas Escorpí, Bourgignon and El Serralet.

We use the tête de cuvée (the first pressing) exclusively. Fermentation takes place between 14-15ºC for 43 days. With a spontaneous fermentation we obtain a high glycerine content.

TASTING NOTES 

star

APPEARANCE

Pale yellow with bright steely green highlights.

NOSE

Broad aromatic range of fresh fruit and  sweet pears. Tropical aromas of pineapple and mango. Kiwi. Citrus, lime, grapefruit, and lemon. Touches of white flowers and a very pleasant hint of aniseed.

PALATE

Fresh on entry, medium bodied with good fruit. Surprisingly glyceride which makes the wine very unctuous. Nice acidity on the finish, adding freshness.

FOOD PAIRINGS

Assorted starters, seafood and fish. From simple dishes to ceviche type preparations. All vegetables and salads. Rice and pasta.
