It may seem a poetic articulation—and it is—but at the same time it is filled with empirical discourse, if we consider the set of physical and chemical reactions that make up wine. Science and mysticism. Body and soul…
We have always endeavored to flee from ostentation, from the symbolization of luxury and money on a label. At a certain point, we started telling the most interesting facts about wine. We have been able to enjoy multiple experiences in open tastings, witnessing expressions enriched by the senses, and we have passed on to the restaurant that which seduced us and made us fall in love as a way of sharing our notion of living wine.
We intend that the people who visit us learn more about who keeps the wine; we want to create a synergy, an approach of respect for nature, of dialogue with the farmers. We want to be ambassadors of the wine maker. We want to show ourselves close to people, where they shouldn’t find rigidity in the tradition and drinking of wine. We want to show that wine cannot only be tasted and smelled, but also felt, even heard. We want to ensure that the visit to the winery is enjoyed by both the wine lover and the teetotaler.
We want to welcome everyone from a child to an older person, and for everyone to find in the cellar a playful, entertaining—but also lucid—sense of reflection on the fascinating dialogue between man and nature: knowing that man intervenes but nature humbles him in return. In short, we want to offer an honest demonstration of the wines we like, in five chapels or spaces dedicated to five varieties, where you can behold the landscape and the sensations that each of them evokes.
We want to be ambassadors of the wine maker. We want to show ourselves close to people, where they shouldn’t find rigidity in the tradition and drinking of wine. We want to show that wine cannot only be tasted and smelled, but also felt, even heard. Josep Roca
