DO TERRA ALTA
The Ebre river is a natural barrier and in 1938, divided the two borders, from Faió to Xerta, becoming the scenario of the longest and most remembered battle. Terres de l'Ebre and the river itself, were forever marked by those 115 days of pain, as well as all men and women who participated, in between them, my grandfather.
loEbre is a tribute to the river, the land and the people, main characters of the big Ebre's Battle. It is the wine showing the suffer and hardness of those days, the tough struggle and also the austerity.
The "Crusilló", word used for the Carignan along the river, has been vinified in an open tank pretending the hyperoxidation of the musts, with no sulphites protection and letting them lose their natural colour, a personal challenge which has allowed to obtain a white wine stained of red, symbolising the colour shown by the Ebre's river during many of those 115 battle days.
Of LoEbre 2018, 1,185 bottles have been produced, out-coming the most transgressor and complex wine of Vins de la Memòria.
