Situated in the DO of Costers del Segre, 120 km northwest of Barcelona, Castell del Remei has been one of the pioneers of Catalan winemaking for over a century. Led by respected winemaker Tomàs Cusiné - their portfolio of wines brings together bright modern fruit with the substance and depth of high quality grapes from mature vineyards.
The estate's 162 hectares of vineyards combine local varieties - Tempranillo, Garnacha and Macabeo, with international grapes - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. 90% of their vineyard is on the nearby mountain slopes at around 750m altitude - with a mixture of clay, loam and sandy soils with gravel to allow good drainage.
Mineral del Montsant is the result of one of Tomàs Cusiné special projects outside of Costers del Segre, in the region surrounding Priorat.
Castell del Remei has long practiced reasoned viticulture, whereby it continually strives to use the minimum amount of chemical treatments possible. All of its own vineyards, and those of its contracted growers, are involved in the Costers del Segre appellation sustainability programme. As of 2019, Castell dei Remei has applied to CCPAE (Catalan Council for Organic Food Production) to convert its vineyards to organic farming, and in three years’ time gain full organic certification.
