Vineyard Information

In a little village nestled in the dramatic rugged hills of the Catalan countryside is Celler de Capcanes. It was into this wild landscape that Jurgen Wagner walked, in the mid-1990s and never left. Entranced by what he found and the potential at the co-operative, he had no option but to stay.

Over the last 25 years he has breathed energy into this venerable operation, instilling pride in the natural wealth that is their vineyards. The potential of the diverse terroirs in these vineyards is captured and expressed so clearly in the delicious Garnachas and blends that Anna Rovira, the winemaker, and Jurgen together conjure up. As an example of how excitement, focus and dynamism can be bred into a co-operative born in the early 20th Century, Capcanes shines.
