We were tremendously excited to discover this dynamic Catalan producer based in the famous town of Manresa. Under the leadership of young Ramon Roqueta since 2006, it has achieved great acclaim in Spain and has embarked on a series of acquisitions and refurbishments designed to recreate some of the glory of the long and illustrious past of its forbears, who can trace a family wine history back to 1199. Among the several projects that they run, we were especially drawn to two : LaFou Celler and Joan Sardà.

Property History:

LAFOU Celler was founded in 2007 with a desire to produce wines that reflect the greatness of the Garnacha variety and a wine region as extraordinary as the Terra Alta. The landscape, the vineyard terraces and the gorges make this an ideal place for this variety to express its true greatness.

Owner History:

It was Ramon Roqueta Segalés – who comes from a family with a long wine-making tradition that dates back to the 12th century – who undertook this personal project at LAFOU. While studying oenology in France, Ramon was seduced by the Garnacha variety, by its expression and its elegance. It was then that he began to consider the idea of ​​developing a project based on this variety, and he began by looking for the territory where this variety best expresses itself. Ramon was captivated by the region of Terra Alta due its style of Garnacha; its freshness, its genuineness and its authenticity. Terra Alta possesses a long tradition in winemaking, a characteristic landscape of valleys and gorges, and an authenticity and belief in tradition.
