Rosé of Grenache, Celler Frisach 'L'Abrunet'
Brothers Francesc and Joan Ferré produce superbly energetic natural wines from their 20 hectares of vines in Corbera d’Ebre, located in the Terra Alta region of Catalonia. For well over 200 years, the Ferré family has been growing grapes and olives in this area.
Traditionally, farmers would sell off their grapes at low prices right after each harvest. One year, a large buyer cancelled their purchase at the last moment, and in 2009, the young brothers Francesc and Joan decided to produce their own wines in order to find their independence and create their own wines that properly reflect their proud hometown of Corbera. The name Frisach was the surname of their great-grandfather, and the name Ca Frisach still adorns the family home where they live.
