About La Vinya d’en Tomàs, Amor Per La Terra
La Vinya d’en Tomàs, Amor Per La Terra is only the second release of these wines – a collab between Salvador Batlle Barrabeig of Cosmic Vinyaters and his two friends, natural wine importer Jaume Jordà and restauranteur Xavi Rutia. This red blend is made by farmer David Pujol Cargol which in 2020 is a blend of 85% Garnatxa 15% Carinyena grown organically from the Masarac vineyard in Alt Empordà at an elevation of 40m over sandy-loam and alluvial soils. Harvested by hand, carbonic maceration in a stainless-steel tank. Indigenous yeast only, no filtration, no clarification, or SO2.
About Amor Per La Terra
If you’ve been to Barcelona on the food and wine trail then you’ve probably stumbled upon Monocrom. In our opinion, it is one of the most thoughtful restaurants in the city with incredibly soulful food and a cutting-edge natural wine list. Well behind it all is Xavi Rutia and his sister Janina. Xavi is in charge of the wine buying so if there’s anybody that knows the current wine scene in Barcelona, it’s him.
Through his relationships and knowledge of the territory, “Amor per la terra” was born, a project focused on highlighting the work of local farmers doing things the old way. He partnered with his friend Jaume Jorda, who imports natural wines by the likes of Strohmeiher and Muster while approaching friend and favorite winemaker, Salvador Batlle of Cosmic Vinyaters for the winemaking side of things. In the end, this small little project is wine made by friends for friends. Nothing more. If you’re familiar with the Cosmic wines then you should have a good idea of what to expect from these. All of the farming is done organically and the wines are made without additives.
