About the Winery
Following their successful project Zulu, where négoce grapes and winery collaborations have led to many exciting cuvées, Jessica and Laurant started Recerca in 2018 with their own vineyard in Paziols.
Embracing Catalan tradition and spirits, Recerca has the region's native varieties like Macabeu, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre at the heart. This focus, together with the winemakers’ unique perspectives, allows them to experiment with different approaches to highlight the characteristics and potential of each grape variety while coming up with interesting cuvees to accommodate different year’s yields.
(instert background info)
Started in 2018 after their project Zulu.
(start current situation)
Currently with about 10Ha of vines, made up of mostly Grenache and Macabeu in the quaint village of Tautavel with some small plantings of Mourvedre and Syrah.
Stylistically their wines are made with no destemming etc.
(why we like their wines)
To the team at Racine Wines Co., each visit has been a pleasure for us and the tastings
After two consecutive years of low drought-like conditions, finally the yield was back to normal. With a little more Grenache and Macabeu in the tank they could finally make up their winery
Jess and Laurent also decided to uproot some of their Lledoner Pelut vines as the yield was not up to pace, something they could no longer deal with in current difficult circumstances.
