Francesc Ferre’s family has been farming grapes organically in Corbera d’Ebre for over 200 years, but only just began making wine in 2009 with then 21 year-old Francesc at the helm, fresh out of school.  It looks as if a giant pulled a ripcord from the earth to create the mountains on either side of their Mediterranean valley, flanked by a forest to the east and a sea of windmills on its blustery western ridge. Corbera’s combination of hot, dry days, evening onshore wind, and cool nights at Corbera’s high elevation allows grapes to maintain acidity in otherwise arid conditions, and makes it an ideal place to grow fresh, vivacious garnatxa.
