Fruity & Smooth

Josep’s family has been making wines for personal consumption in their Masia, a Catalan word for farm house, since 1843. In 2008 the family decided to start selling their production: wines that reflect their passion for viticulture and their landscape. Their philosophy, both in viticulture and winemaking is very sustainable-based.

The Sentits Negre is a dark and intense version of Garnatxa, where the fruit is hand harvested and brought into the cellar for a natural fermentation in stainless steel and oak barrels.  The wine is transferred to lightly toasted, new French Allier oak barrels for malolactic conversion and 12 months of aging. 

The resulting wine is impressive yet elegant and very well balanced.  On the nose there is expressive notes of raspberry, forest fruits, spices, and mustard, while the palate echoes these flavours with a fantastic balance of acidity and smooth tannins.

About the Winery

Bodegas Puiggròs

Since 1843, the Puiggros family has been producing wines from their own vines in the Odena region of Catalunya for the family and close friends. Over generations they had come to realize that their vineyards and techniques were something worth sharing with the world. A sincere dedication to the terroir in their zone and the indigenous varieties that grow there, allows them to constantly discover ways to unlock all of the magic that lies within their land.

Starting with conscious and clean farming in the vineyard, they hand-harvest only the best fruit for their production, and ferment each vineyard separately in varying vessels to accentuate what the vines have to show; some in stainless steel, and many in clay amphora of differing sizes. All the while seeing very little sulfur use (if any) until bottling. Puiggros is pushing the quality of northeastern Spain's wines forward, and doing so in a clean and unique way.
