Mas del Serral is a pathway with a single destination: the origin. When we distance ourselves from our roots, we are able to reflect about the place we come from, there where our identity was shaped, where we learnt to dream as children and where fears were nothing more than horizons to cross. Perhaps this is what happened to Joan Miró when, in 1922, he was staying in Paris and painted La Masía, The Farm, the painting where he paid homage to the country house in Mont-Roig del Camp where he learnt to draw when he was three years old. Similarly, observing the painting by Miró in the National Gallery during a key time when he was far from home, Pepe Raventós realised that his dream was to restore Mas del Serral to its origins: traditional agriculture based on the harmony between nature, animals and mankind and the evidence that, as the painter said,

"to be universal you have to be radically local"

4 years after the first vintage

"The longer I have lived in Mas del Serral, the more I realize the uncertainties of making wine. That there are no predetermined rules and that there are no sciences to follow."

"Wine is experiencing a good moment. A moment of going back to its origins. Back to simplicity, to transparency. The recovery of natural prominence and liberation from snobbish or pretentious positions."

- Pepe Raventós

"The magic of wine lies in the power of taking you to the place where it was made; it takes you on a journey to its origins"
"Our aim is to express the maximum potential of the plot: austerity, Xarel·lo, salinity and minerality. It is only when we fully discover this potential that we can interpret Mas del Serral"
"Mas del Serral is where the past and future meet; offering something lasting in the future but also working on it with the ways of yesteryear"

The wine


The 2009 cycle began with a rainy autumn and winter.
Lots of rain during the months of March and April. The dry spring favored a slow and healthy vegetative growth. In the month of July, 41 liters rained down, helping the plant at this critical moment and slowing maturation. A dry and hot August provoked a fast, healthy and quality harvest.
The cycle 10 days longer than usual was ideal to promote optimal maturation with great natural acidity. Add with an average temperature of 14.4º C (average annual of 15.3º C) and pluviometry of 526 mm (annual average of 520 mm).

The viticulture

The grape harvest

"The more time I spend living at Mas del Serral, the more I realize that when making wine there are numerous uncertainties, no set rules and that there is no science to follow."
"A wine defined by our soils, where you can experience the land, the air and even the mountains"
