In my village it is said that in 1900 people did not know the forest. The whole surrounding landscape was
vineyards. At that time in my small town there were at that time 300 ha of vineyard, in the year 2000 the
surface of vineyard was of little more than one ha. During the last century, almost all the vineyards were
abandoned, thus disappearing from our landscape and being occupied by pines and oaks.
My first vintage was at the age of seventeen in the vineyard of some friends who decided to keep the
vineyard of the father of one of them for romance and especially to have fun. Explaining this fact to my
grandmother, I remembered at home my great-grandparents how beautiful the vineyards of her childhood
In 2006 I had the opportunity to go and live on the farm of Can Pau Bernadó. With this "contract" of
peasantry I can live in a rural environment and there begins to take shape my project to recover old
vineyards. In 2010 I created the association Piensa en vi with the aim of making known and disseminating
the natural, historical and cultural heritage of the region taking as a backbone the vineyard and wine. And
the same year began the replanting of 0.1 ha of self-consumption. Soon, however, I encounter many
administrative hurdles. This, however, does not stop me from starting to make my first wines for
self-consumption with historical varieties.
In 2011 I started a micro-patronage project through which about eighty patrons collaborate in the purchase
of the most basic material to carry out a small shared self-learning warehouse.
In 2013, I set up the
Talcomraja winery on the same estate as Can Pau Bernadó, where I continue to
the wines he was already making by adding grapes from a Mataró vineyard with the Merlot and Cabernet
Until then, I always followed the guidelines of organic farming, both in the vineyard and in the
winery with techniques such as filtration, tartaric precipitation, clarifications, addition of sulfites ...
with which I did not feel very comfortable. In 2014 I started making my first natural wines.
That same year, I started working a vineyard in the municipality of st. Cebrià de Vallalta, 20 years old
of antiquity and varieties Merlot and Cabernet.
In 2016 I started a second micro-patronage project "we unveiled the vineyard" to replant one
vineyard of 0'3 ha of the tempranillo variety in Can Pau Bernadó and the following year (2017) reaching a
In agreement with the owners of the Can Sala de Dalt estate, we replanted the historic 3ha vineyard
this farm disappeared in the mid-60s. The varieties planted are native (monastrell, white currant and black
During these years I have been accompanied in this project by very different people from whom I have
learned and who they have helped me in replanting, harvesting and vinification processes. At present, I
continue working the vineyards of Mataró and Can Sala and vintage also half ha in Tordera. Faces in the
next year, I will start replanting a new 2 ha vineyard on the Roca del Llop estate (the idea is
plant 6 different varieties of grenache). With the association Piensa en vi I continue to spread the word
and pedagogy of the importance of agroecology. With this entity since the year
2019 begins the NaNo festival coinciding with the main festival of Arenys where several producers of
Natural wines expose their young wines.
Today these wines are sold only within the Catalan territory through direct sale in the
Saturday slow food market in the Paral • lel (BCN) or through the distributor specialized in
natural wines Human wines.
Our wines are the result of shared learning. Absorbing knowledge of ancient winemakers of our land and observing and experimenting with new trends. This winery is always open to share vintages,
tastings and cooperative projects.
Both the vineyard and the winery followed the guidelines of organic farming with a tendency to experiment with natural wines. So many will not open terraces, maximizing biodiversity in the
vineyard and treatments are based mainly on herbs and whey estracto increasingly reducing sulfur and copper.
We understand our work as a commitment towards the environment and society. The dissemination of knowledge and appreciation of the natural and cultural history go hand in hand commitment to
dignify the life of the agricultural sector and enhance presence in this region.
Our philosophy is to support food sovereignty and contribute to sustainable development at all stages of development of our natural and organic wines. Through a small production quality and
proximity, we continue to delight all your senses you and taking care of both the environment and your health. That is why we have a Corporate Social Responsibility Report which can be found
here. Because our commitment is to you.
