The cooperative is located in the municipality of Capçanes in the northern Spanish region of Catalonia. It was founded in 1933 by five families. For about 50 years, the yields were sold to other companies as cask wines, and from 1980 onwards, all cellar technology was discontinued and only the grapes were marketed. In 1995 they started to produce kosher wine for the Jewish community in Barcelona and therefore invested in cellars and equipment. After his studies in Geisenheim, the German oenologist Jürgen Wagner visited the cooperative one year later and was hired as the person responsible for cellar technology and marketing. And with that the big change began. Pere Pelleja is responsible as managing director.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
