Mas blanc i jové
Catalonia, Spain

The estate was created in 2006 in the village of Cérvoles (province of Lleida), under the name Costers del Segre. Born of farmer grandparents, but of a father who had made a fortune in a big company, Sarah Jové was eager to return to her source. Her vineyards are located in Les Garrigues, border region of Priorat, at more than 700 meters of altitude. The particularity of the vineyard is that it is on more than 1000 hectares of land in a protected park known for its wide variety of ancient trees. The plots are divided on 17 hectares and all cultivated organically and certified by the CCPAE. On each parcel, a work of art is erected and it is not uncommon to see exhibitions organized outdoors. There are also works of art in the cellar.

The soil is composed of clay, chalk and is deprived of organic components therefore limiting the production of grapes to 3,500 kg per hectare. For this reason, the grape varieties grown there: Grenache Black and White, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Merlot, Macabeo, Sirà, Sumoll, Viognier and Riesling have a higher concentration of sugar and polyphenols.

Concerned with the environment, and in order to guarantee energy self-sufficiency, 110 solar panels have been installed at the estate. Today, more than 99% of the electricity used to produce wines comes from solar energy. Nothing is added in the production of wine except a small touch of sulfur at bottling and some cuvées are even vinified in amphorae.
