Lagravera

Wineries and wines, Catalonia, Costers del Segre
Lagravera was created when the Arnó family decided to do something unprecedented: restore an old gravel pit and make it into a vineyard. The building that houses the cellar, located in the municipality of Alfarràs, in the region of Segrià, is an old warehouse, also renovated and adapted to the new activity. The structure combines tradition and modernity, preserving industrial elements while adding others needed for a winery.

Lagravera was created when the Arnó family decided to do something unprecedented: restore an old gravel pit and make it into a vineyard. The building that houses the cellar, located in the municipality of Alfarràs, in the region of Segrià, is an old warehouse, also renovated and adapted to the new activity. The structure combines tradition and modernity, preserving industrial elements while adding others needed for a winery.

Under the imperatives of ecological and biodynamic agriculture, and certified by the Catalan Council of Ecological Production (CCPAE), they work 11.3 hectares of vine employing advanced planting, monitoring and control techniques. The result of all this is Ónra, a wine which distinguishes and honours (hence the name) it creators, for as they say at Lagravera: "Reverence is an honour one carries in the heart." In total, they produce five different wines (two whites, two reds and one rosé) under the DO Costers de Segre and obtained from the white varieties Chenin, Sauvignon Blanc, Malbec and Garnacha Blanca and the reds Monastrell, Garnacha Negra, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Their tenacity and eco-friendly philosophy earned them Special Mention in Innovation, Quality and Sustainable Development at the 2011 Rutas del Vino de España (Spanish Wine Routes) awards.

By prior appointment guests can learn up close about stocks buried in the gravel or discover the firm's history in the winery museum. At the end, they can sample the wines and buy them in the on-site store.
