I am a newcomer to the village of Rabós. My friends are all over seventy years old and they often tell me about how life used to be here – a life that has largely disappeared but that i still see.I dedicate myself to observation, to asking questions of the village elders, to socialising, to organising wine fairs, to enjoying life, to walking, to intense vineyard pruning, to learning the history of Rabós d’empordà, to recovering lost vineyards, to trying to reopen the village bar, to selling wine, to seeing sunsets, to running through vineyards and catching peaches as they fall from trees; to ferment when I don’t breathe (no entenc que vols dir aquí), to changing the tractor oil, to strimming the brush, to fighting wild boars, to learning the art of dry stone walling, to harvesting almonds, to cooking for the people I love, to giving wine and viticulture classes, to discovering old, disused wine cellers, to recovering small barrels of ‘rancid wine’ as we call it, and to listening to nature.
I bottle all this in 75 cl format.
All wines are made from organic vine grapes from the life of Rabós d'Empordà. Slate terrain. Wild yeasts. Minimum intervention criteria.
