Castell D’Encus is located in the Spanish Pyrenees in a truly idyllic spot. Winemaker Raül Bobet spent 20 years working as a winemaker in the Torres wine empire before deciding in 2001 to push the boundaries of wine making. Wine making is not easy in the Pyrenees, and his mission is to "find the highest quality wine from different grape varieties." In total, 23 of the 95 hectares are planted vineyards. The intention is to make a limited number of bottles of wine from grapes only from our own vineyards. All grapes are picked by hand. Out of respect for nature, no pesticides, weed killers or fungicides are used and only those agents are used that are permitted in organic wine growing.
The vineyards are located at an altitude of 850-1,300 meters above sea level, with maximum sun exposure. The domain has an old chapel and accompanying stone tanks that were carved out of the rock in the 12th century and in which the monks were already making wine at that time. These tanks are also used again now.
