Josep Serra is a 4th generation winemaker that grew up in the area of Ribera del Ebre, just in between the DO’s of Terra Alta and Priorat. After enology school and working as winemaker and technical director at a large and prominent local winery, Josep began his own personal project in 2009 to utilize some vineyards he had purchased in the late 90’s of Garnacha Fina, Garnacha Negre, and Cariñena. Josep has a sincere dedication to elaborating his wines with a soft touch, with the upmost respect for nature and the environment that provides him with these native grapes, and letting only indigenous yeasts lead the road towards his clean wines. His estate fruit is funneled into his DO Montsant ‘Octonia’ wine, while he rents land in the DO Terra Alta to make his elegant Aucalà line.
