Mas Candí is a joint venture between Ramon Jané, Mercè Cuscó, Toni Carbó, and Ana Serra, Catalunya natives who are passionate about organic/ chemical-free farming and low-intervention winemaking. They are some of the first to break with tradition in the Penedès, where nearly all farmers must sell their fruit to massive Cava houses just to survive. In 2006, they began to shift to natural farming; now in their old-vine vineyards inherited from their families, chemical additions have been eliminated; emphasis is on gentle, manual handling of fruit throughout the process. They produce wines from local, nearly-forgotten varieties. Until now, there has been little precedent for wines like these in Penedès; Mas Candí is at the forefront of a changing scene in the region for both still and sparkling wines. In addition, Mas Candí is inspiring many farmers and young people to explore the possibility of producing naturally-farmed wines of quality from their own vineyards.

Fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged for 12 months on its lees before bottling. Aromas of black cherry and blackberry, with a lovely smooth texture and notes of tea, wild herbs and spice.
