Cooperativa Falset-Marçà delivers Around 900,000 Wine Bottles Every Year
Boasting a century-old winemaking history, Cooperativa Falset-Marçà is a result of the fruitful merger of two winery cooperatives – Falset and Marçà, two historic towns, three kilometers apart from one another. Today, the estate headquarter are in the Falset region of Tarragona in DO Montsant, elevated above the hill. Being one of Spain’s largest producers, the winery exports its wines, vermouth, and olive oil to around 30 other countries of the world.
Take a Deep Dive into the Hundred Years of Tradition
Cooperativa Marçà was founded in 1912 and Cooperativa Falset in 1917, followed by the ancient cellar construction in 1919. The merger began in 1999 with a pure intention of producing high-end wines and olive oil. Today, more than 500 members handle and cultivate around 250 hectares of vineyards to grow local and international red and white grapes. In the same year as emergence, many state-of-the-art technologies were introduced in the cellar. The wooden tanks were replaced with stainless steel tanks, and the old oil mill was converted into an air-conditioned barrel room
Flagships of the Winery – Grenaches and Carignans
With complete respect for nature, the cooperative winery families grow a wide selection of red and white varietals. The red grapes include Garnacha, Samsó, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah, whereas Garnacha Blanca and Macabeo constitute the whites. During harvesting, these grapes enter the historic cellar, built by Cesar Martinelli. The building is a jewel from the early 20th century and a heritage symbol of rural Catalonia. Visiting the winery will help the guests discover the unique aspects of the medieval cellar.
