Wines and Landscape
L’oli d’en Grau is a product born at La Gutina
Let us introduce ourselves: we’re Barbara and Joan Carles Torres. Our winery is located in the Aspres de l’Albera: a property of 80 hectares of vineyards, meadows, olive groves and cork oak forests in a Mediterranean landscape marked by granite outcrops, dolmens and menhirs, and natural wetlands protected by the Natura 2000 network.
We keep up and protect the land we inherited: we tend to the old vines, plant small plots for new projects and make wines with the aims of enhancing the terroir, the natural landscape and their biodiversity.
We work our Grenache blanc, rouge and noir vines with organic methods and minimal intervention in the soil and plants; we make certified organic natural wines.
We collaborate with ecological and environmental stewardship organizations, farmers and associations for the maintenance and protection of the countryside, promotion of biodiversity and landscape heritage recovery.
In order to show visitors how we live and work, we have restored a cottage as a guesthouse, we’ve marked out a walking tour of our land, we organize wine-tourism activities and we’re always delighted to welcome people in our cellar to talk about and taste our wines together!
