Description

Discover Mas Estela, a family run winery located located in the village of La Selva de Mar, in the Nature Reserve of Cap de Creus, where all the wines are made from hand harvested grapes grown on the estate. 
 
Mas Estela is a thousand year old property which uses organic, biodynamic methods to protect and conserve the natural environment. 
 
In 1989, the Soto-Dalmau family acquired the farmhouse and the 50 hectares of land around it. After a long and quite difficult restoration job, Mas Estela came back to life and 16 hectares were replanted with red Grenache, Carignan, Monastrell and Muscat of Alexandria grape varieties.

This is their philosophy, desire and way of working.

Mas Estela also offers three types of accomodation quite diferent from one another but all within the "Mas" (farm in Catalan) while offering perfect privacy in openness to nature and high level comfort: la Cabanya, a secluded and cosy small house for up to four people, the Sweet Suite, a one bedroom appartment on the ground floor of the Mas, and L'Alcove, a one bedroom on the first floor of the Mas.
 
Wine lovers can enjoy visits of the property followed by a wine tasting allowing them to discover a vineyard in a natural space where ecology and biodynamics have been applied for the last 25 years. The wines are the result of our working methods and their tastes reflect the authenticity of the places where they were born.
