COSTERS DEL SEGRE
Costers Del Sió
The love of the land inspired one
man’s dream to come true.
‘A great wine starts in the vineyard and we need to take good care of it’...
From the lands of Flix, Ribera del Sió, we welcome Bodegas Costers del Sió to the family.
In 1992, restless ambition and a desire to live in the country led Juan Maria to acquire Finca de Flix, and with help from family and friends they planted their first vineyard in '98. It is a property of impressive beauty. The quiet and tranquillity of the region creates a perfect ecological balance growing Tempranillo, Garanacha Tinta, Chardonnay and Viognier.
This insightful family with brothers Juan and José at the helm, experiment and study vine behaviour in order to obtain the highest quality grapes directly in the vineyard. La Boscana, a beautiful Catalan term to denote a vast expanse of forest, evokes nature, open air and relaxation.
Whether the Grenache/Tempranillo or Chard/Viognier the image portrayed is fun, different and youthful - a faithful reflection of the qualities of these wines. ‘Silvestre’ means 'what comes naturally' and as the name suggests this aged Grenache/Tempranillo blend is original and genuine.
Uncomplicated and terroir driven, these Catalonian wines represent the land that they came from and this family’s dream.
