Martí Fabra

Empordà

This property has been in the Fabra family since the 12th Century, and they have documents referencing their vineyards dating back from 1305. Empordà has many similarities to Roussillon just over the French border in respect of grape varieties, climate and terroir. They also share the uncompromising Tramontana wind which dries the land and vines meaning little need for treatments. The poor soils consist mainly of meteorized slate which add a clear mineral edge to the wines and keep yields naturally low. The wines are beautifully made and quite unique - the main varieties being Garnacha and Cariñena (of all shades, tinto, blanco and gris) and Muscat.
