The winery

 
dia   HISTORY
In 1988, Carbonell Figueras family with a long winemarking tradition in the country begins the project of the cave “Clos Montblanc”. Our winery is located in Barberà de la Conca, very close to two symbolic locations in the history of Catalonia: the fortified town of Montblanc and the Monastery of Poblet. It is an area steeped in history and tradition. Here the Cistercian monks settled, nearly a thousand years ago, with their firm goal of finding the way to perfection. Their ethos survives in the hearts of the local people today and can be clearly seen in the way in which they go about their day-to-day work.
 
lescomes   WINES
Our wines obtain their character from indigenous varieties such as Tempranillo or Grenache, together with foreign grapes such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon or Syrah, in a symbiosis of character and added personality. The white wines blend traditional Macabeo from Spain with Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, giving the mix exactly the right balance. The rosés are made from varieties such as Tempranillo, Merlot, Cabernet and Pinot Noir in a fermentation process we call “cascade” due to the special vinification procedure involved.

THE CELLAR
The cellar has the space and equipment for modern vinification and a production capacity of over one million bottles as well as deposits for micro-vinification (where we make wine from our family-owned vineyards), stainless steel tanks with inertia systems, isothermal deposits, two horizontal hydraulic presses and a pneumatic membrane press. The winery has an ageing cellar containing more than 1,300 barrels and a wide range of coopers “tonellerie” from France, America and Hungary. Our winemaker Josep Vadrí has extensive experience in the vinification world and has worked with collaborators from vineyards in places as diverse as France, Chile and Australia. This experience has left its mark on his oenology, which is characterised by vanguard wines in which the fruit is brought to the fore by the ageing process and where each grape variety reveals the very best it has to offer. span>
