Mas Blanch I Jové – an Organic Certified Winery Situated in the DO Costers del Segre, Priorat
Perched on the mountains, Mas Blanch I Jové Winery is situated in the DO Costers del Segre, on the western boundary of Priorat. With EU organic certification in place since 2015, the company is producing delicious wines that express the character and soul of their unique climate and soils. The winery of Mas Blanch I Jové is surrounded by charming vineyards, as well as olive groves. Using artistic sculptures, the owner has enhanced the outer frontier of the winery which gives a breathtaking view to all visitors.
Respecting old family traditions, the owner established Mas Blanch I Jové Winery in 2006 and converted the production to fully organic in 2015.
Combination of Solar Energy and Old Family Winemaking Traditions
Respecting the old family traditions, the owner established the Mas Blanch I Jové Winery in 2006 in La Pobla de Cérvoles, Lleida. For several generations, this winemaking family has been making wines from old grape vines using both innovative and traditional methods. In the cellar, most of the work is carried out using solar energy, thanks to their 110 solar panels located on the roof of the winery.
Organic Vineyards with a Multitude of Grape Varieties
Covering a total land of 17 hectares, the vineyards undergo ecologically balanced and organic methods of grape growing. At Mas Blanch I Jové, the owner grows a broad array of grapes, including Grenache, Macabeu, Grenache Blanc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The staff also cultivates desirable Tempranillo, Syrah, Viognier, and Riesling. All harvesting activities are done by hand so that only the most desirable berries are selected and transported to the cellar for fermentation. Using high-quality vines, Mas Blanch I Jové Winery produces red and whites wines, along with luscious rosé wines.
Another fascinating aspect about the winery is they offer a walk inside a “painting-like structure,” guests can smell ancient rosemary and rudder woods, taste their wines and oils, and can explore the art between vines and olive trees. It all happens in Les Garrigues – the estate’s wine shop.
