Costador is a unique project in Tarragona working organically to produce an array of single vineyard wines from unique mountain plots. The vineyards are very old, with the majority between 60 to 110 years and many different soil types including slate, clay and limestone.

This is made from an indigenous Catalunya variety Trepat from 80 year old bush vines at high altitude in the south of Catalonia. After hand-harvesting and fermentation with native yeasts the wine is aged for 6 months in clay amphora. The result is complex, wild and brambly with a long finish and acidity which balances its length and complexity.
