We are exceptionally proud to import this outstanding and multiple-award-winning DO Empordà organic red to the UK. Clos Adrien is a high quality blend of hand-picked Syrah and Garnatcha from one of our favourite vineyards - Terra Remota, in Girona, Catalonia. Top marks to wine-maker Mark for putting together this amazing gift of the land. This is fast becoming Co-Founder Martin's favourite wine within the Collectivino collection. What an incredible treat.

Tasting Notes

Deep garnet with a pronounced nose of ripe blackberries, black cherry, stewed plumb and some gentle hints of sweet spices, vanilla, chocolate and brioche. Structured and complex in the mouth with some wonderful flavours of cooked fruit and dates. Think Christmas Pudding and you just about get it. Well structured with gentle tannins, and a luscious big finish that won't disappoint. Seriously good. 

Food pairing

An excellent meal wine, working well with hearty stews, beef and grilled pork.

About the vineyard & winemaker

The Terra Remota winery was founded in 1999, when the Bournazeau Florensa family acquired 15 hectares of virgin land occupied by oaks, cork oak, pine. This has now evolved into a property covering 54 hectares, half of which are used for growing vines, located in the far northeast of the Iberian Peninsula, in the Alt Empordà region, in Girona province, and falling within the DO Empordà. 

Situated on the outskirts of the villages of Capmany and Sant Climent Sescebes, at the heart of a forested area, the estate is protected from the northern tramuntana wind by the Albera Massif. It lies some 15 km from the Mediterranean sea, at a height of 140 metres above sea level and has soils that are markedly granitic in nature. This is a solitary, captivating spot that appears to be far removed from the rest of the world, and this explains the name that Terra Remota has given to its project. Paradoxically, despite the remoteness of the location, this area has been occupied by human communities since ancient times. Thus, remains of settlements belonging to the Iberian culture have been documented in the region, which goes to prove the long history of the human presence in this territory. In recognition of this, for its logo, Terra Remota has used two symbols attributed to these ancient communities, engraved on blocks of granite: O+.

From its birth, the Terra Remota winery has displayed a marked sensitivity towards the territory on which it stands, and coherence in the way it is integrated into the surrounding natural landscape. All this constitutes the backbone of Terra Remota’s philosophy and influences its actions in every sense.

We spent a day with owner and winemaker Marc (and a number of his cats and dogs!). He is stylish and design oriented - which is evident as soon as you see the winery that he constructed with a leading Spanish architect Nacho Ferrer. He takes great pride in his work and his land, and he is an experimental perfectionist when it comes to his wines. And he's charming. We look forward to visiting him and his family again soon. 

Sustainability rating: 2* (Good)

Terra Remota is a visionary organic winery project set near Figures in the Girona region of northern Spain. Winemaker and owners Marc and Emma have created something special in the granitic soils of the Pyrannean foothills, with beautifully designed architecture built sympathetically into the landscape. The vineyard has organic certification since 2012 and organic practice over its initial 15 hectares since  inception. Marc uses gravity throughout the winery, and rainwater harvesting from the winery roof which covers the additional watering required in the hot summers of Girona.
