Terra Remota

One of the most emblematic and innovative wineries in Empordà

Product ID: 53990
Description

Discover Terra Remota, one of the most emblematic and innovative wineries in Empordà. Situated on the outskirts of the villages of Capmany and Sant Climent Sescebes, at the heart of a forested area, the estate is protected from the northern tramuntana wind by the Albera Massif.
 
A winery highly sensitive to its surroundings, Terra Remota is strongly committed to becoming integrated within its environment. These concepts form the core of its philosophy and govern its approach in all respects.
 
The winery was founded in 1999, and is owned by Marc and Emma Bournazeau, a French couple with Catalan roots; Emma Bournazeau’s grandfather was a Catalan who emigrated to France just after the Spanish Civil War, settling in Perpignan. For this family, and especially for Claude Florensa, Emma’s father, Terra Remota represents the recovery of a lost identity and, in short, a return to its origins that has helped to assuage the nostalgia associated with exile.
 
Vineyards and woodland are interspersed on the estate and the winery building not only merges into the natural setting but also incorporates a gravity-flow production system that involves minimal handling. The result is a top quality...
