Funky, citrusy orange

Place: Catalunia, Spain
Nuria Renom, began making wines from her tiny rented vineyard and farmhouse in the Garraf national park in 2014 whilst still in her role as head sommelier at Bar Brutal in Barcelona. Finishing late night shifts in the restaurant she would take the first train from Barcelona back to her home in the Garraf to carefully tend to her vines. Now somewhat a nomad winemaker, Nuria is temporarily based in the cellar of good friends Anna
and Toni of La Salada, whilst she searches for her own space. Although she works a handful of her
own beloved plots, this gives her the freedom to work with some of the best viticultors in Penedès and the surrounding hills, each year purchasing small amounts of grapes directly from growers to continue making her often tiny productions of wine, of which some she only produces 100 or so bottles. Nuria’s wines, much like her, are utterly uncompromising. She makes wines that not only express this region’s climate and its soils perfectly, they also somehow mirror her personality and intention.
