22 years of evolution of the first great Garnacha wine in Spain
The best way to explain the greatness of a wine is through a vertical tasting ... and yesterday we had the opportunity to demonstrate it in Alimentaria. Cabrida proved to be the "first great wine 100% Grenache of Spain" citing the words of our esteemed Juan Fernández Cuesta (renowned taster and author of the ABC wine guide). Attendees could recognize with great surprise how after 22 years of evolution Cabrida hasen't lost its "spark", its acidity, balance and intensity.

Mas Collet 2015 has been recommended by the Decanter Magazine! "Capçanes is a outstanding cooperative at the heart of reviving the once-fading Montsant region. This wines are very pretty good too, and excellent value! Mas Collet is a typical blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Samsó, with a dash of Cabernet Sauvignon. Full of fruit, and oak aged - give it and extra year or two to develop."

Allison Levine
This month Allison Levine on his blog "Please the Palate" writes about the influence of terroirs on the grape and recommends the collection of La Nit de la Garnatxes del Celler de Capçanes. "There are general descriptors that say that sandy soils produce highly aromatic wines with low tannins and clay soils produce muscular wines with high extract. And there are examples of wines from around the world that demonstrate the influence on wines from sandy, volcanic, clay, limestone, slate and other soils.
