Venus La Universal
Sara Perez and René Barbier are scions of Mas Martinet and Clos Mogador, respectively, the great houses that founded Priorat. They grew up there, fell in love, and started their own project together in neighboring Montsant in 2001. Their journey to convert their various vineyards to organic farming taught them Montsant viticulture from the ground up and brought them to the forefront of the movement in Spain. Their vast experience and nuanced understanding of their terroir yields fruit and wines of depth, nuance, balance, freshness and persistence seldom seen in the region.
Sara and René craft: Dido, Dido Blanc, Dido Rosat, Venus Tinto, Venus de la Figuera, Venus Blanco
