Ferre I Catasus "Compta Ovelles" Penedes White Blend 2020 - Catalonia, Spain
Varietals: Xarel-lo & Macabeo
Compta Ovellas white wine is a delicate representation of its origins, honest and true to its roots with unmistakable tropical fruits, citric and floral notes, long on the palate and placing you, if you close your eyes, in the middle of their vineyards.
The spirit of Catalan modernism, the desire to transform society, creativity used as a tool to break free from conventionality, this is the Ferré I Catasús spirit.
Ferré I Catasús believe that "The best wine is the one that you like" because they believe in the free creative expression of everyone and they don't want wine pairing recommendations, traditional criteria of evaluation, nor wine making regulations, to limit the possibilities of taking our world towards new places and horizons.
t all started in 1935, when Lluis Ferré Pascual, the son of a family of winegrowers from Penedès, secretly married Maria Catasús Domènech. This wedding was not well received by either of the two families, especially that of Lluis Ferré Pascual, who was disinherited.
Born from this courageous relationship, Josep Mª Ferré became in the 90's a prominent businessman in the food sector, together with his wife, Sònia Serrano Quetglas.
Lovers of the most modernist and cultural side of Barcelona and its history, they acquired the restaurant "Els 4Gats" and various estates in the Penedès where their ancestors had worked the vineyards in bygone days.
The most cosmopolitan and intellectual society of Barcelona captivated them leaving a deep impression that would nurture the Ferré I Catasús philosophy.
Today, their children, and in particular Lluís Ferré, carry on with the family dream, giving life and a soul to the Ferré I Catasús celler.
A soul that transmits curiosity and enthusiasm within the team, a soul that gives birth to wines with innovative aromas, breaking with tradition and opening up new paths, just as his grandparents did.
