Excellence at its Finest
The Estate Mas Fuertes originally was used as a lookout post to spot enemies arriving from the Mediterranean Sea. Located high on the hills of Gavarres, it has an overwhelming 360 degree view over land and sea. Before the estate was transformed into the special Vineyard, it was a 200 years old ruin with only one wall standing and trees growing inside the old fallen place.
Times changed when the Estate was transformed – in 2005 – into a beautiful and extraordinary place to start a Vineyard. The Vineyard started in 2008 with red varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, expanding the collections in later years with Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, and Petit Verdot. The Estate is divided into the old vineyard, containing the plants that started the vineyard in 2008, and the young vineyards, containing the newly added wine plants.
An Estate located in the La D’Empordà area in the Northeastern part of Spain. The beautiful color combination of green, blue and a touch of purple is seen all over the area. The culture of winemaking, the knowledge of the process and product originated from the 6th century BC. With great thanks to the important Greek colony in the country, the Empúries, who after centuries gave its name to the entire region: L’Empordà
The Mas Fuertes Vineyard is located on the Northern slopes of the Gavarres massifs and at the Southern end of the Empordanese plains.
This beautiful area gave birth to a novel and unique vineyard with a special way of winemaking.
