To be fully appreciated, some projects require a perspective that only comes with time. This is the case of Cérvoles Celler, the venture first undertaken by Tomàs Cusiné 20 years ago in order to pay homage to an ancestral wine-making land, reclaiming a practice that, at that time, didn’t attract much interest in the world of wine: mountain viticulture.
Used to working with the vineyards on Urgell plains in the land of Castell del Remei, the property acquired by his family in 1982, for Cusiné the vineyards at La Pobla de Cérvoles represented a true revelation and an unbeatable opportunity to rethink his work as a winemaker, taking on a far-reaching commitment to the land of Les Garrigues and its people. This project also represented a return to the area’s roots although Cusiné did not turn his back on the technological advances of the present (and future).
So it was that, in 1997, Cérvoles Celler was created, a winery designed to produce high quality single estate wines, which expresses clearly the territory where they are grown and with its sights firmly set on the ultimate goal: to be the first mountain viticultural project set up in Catalonia.
Cara Nord was created by 3 people, joined for more than 20 years by their friendship and their passion for wine: Tomas Cusine, Xavier Cepero and Eric Solomon. They had many years of experience in the wine industry, and in March 2012 they decided to start a winemaking project together.
They all had long been attracted to the majesty of the North Face of the Sierra de Prades and its magnificent climate, land and history of quality winemaking. It is an environment classified of great Geological Interest and protected by the Natural Park of the Forest of Poblet.
From experienced they knew the potential of the grapes grown in the Prades Mountains when it came to making good wines: the excellence seen in the DO Priorat, the reliability of D.O. Montsant, and the creativity of the DO Costers del Segre all originate from the same mountain range.
