We are thrilled to release another handful of new wines from Laureano Serres of Mendall.
Laureano is simply a legend of Catalan wine. From his home and cellar based in the hot, dusty little town of El Pinell de Brai he has been influential in inspiring others in the area to return to their winemaking roots through a sense of community and love of life that is both legendary and infectious.
Laureano farms six hectares of vineyards spread over parcels around El Pinell and higher up in the Terra Alta, some of which are around five hundred metres above sea level. There is little topsoil, meaning the vines often dig right into the limestone bedrock below. The terroir lends Laureano’s wines a freshness and complexity that is not always common in this part of the world and they are truly one of a kind – vivid expressions of man, grape and place.
These are the first half of releases from last year’s harvest, with a focus on deep, vibrant reds so suited to these cooler autumn months.
The following wines are now live on Tutto a Casa
