About the Event
Pep Aguilar and Patri Morillo formed their own oenology consultancy which evolved into the creation of their own label - Celler Comunica - in 2010. They make small-batch organic and biodynamic wines in an old farmhouse estate (named the Mas d’en Cosme Estate) in the town of Falset on the border of D.O. Priorat and D.O. Montsant.
Pep and Patri spend more time in the vineyards than in the winery, getting to know each and every one of their vines and every inch of earth in which they grow.
Comunica’s soils are mainly granitic, allowing them to produce fresh, vibrant wines like the ones granite soils lend themselves to in D.O. Montsant. The climate is dry, but on summer evenings, in spite of the heat, a cool breeze will blow in from the Atlantic to provide the vines and soils with moisture. Pep and Patri use no oak at all; they prize freshness and bright clean fruit over dry extract and high alcohol. The wines are ultra-drinkable and thirst quenching, and provide a fascinating insight into a terroir that’s too often hidden behind alcohol and oak.
