Castell d'Encus is a winery located in the Pallars Jussà region of Catalonia, Spain, known for producing high-quality wines that reflect the unique terroir of the area. Founded in 2001 by winemaker Raül Bobet, Castell d'Encus has since become one of the most innovative wineries in the region.
The winery owns over 23 hectares of vineyards, which are planted with a variety of grape varietals, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Syrah. The vineyards are situated at an altitude of 850-1000 meters and are planted on soils that are rich in limestone and other minerals.
Castell d'Encus produces a range of wines, including their flagship wine, the Castell d'Encus Quest. This wine is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Petit Verdot grapes and is aged in French oak barrels for 12-18 months. The wine is known for its complex aromas of black fruit, spices, and minerals, as well as its full-bodied and well-structured palate.
In addition to their Quest wine, Castell d'Encus also produces a range of other wines, including the Castell d'Encus Ekam, a white wine made from Riesling grapes, and the Castell d'Encus Tocat de l'Ala, a red wine made from Pinot Noir grapes. These wines are all made from carefully selected grapes and are aged in French oak barrels for varying lengths of time.
Castell d'Encus is known for their commitment to innovation and experimentation in winemaking, and they have been at the forefront of the use of biodynamic and organic winemaking practices.
