Sant Josep Vins

The wine brand of Cooperativa Agrícola Sant Josep de Bot.

Bodega Sant Josep Vins is the commercial brand name of Agrícola Sant Josep de Bot. Founded in 1962 in Bot, Tarragona, this agricultural cooperative is dedicated to the production of olive oil, wine and almonds.

In the 1990s, celler Sant Josep Vins pioneered the production of quality wines from DO Terra Alta, currently one of the hottest wine regions in Catalonia.

Bodega Sant Josep Vins farms over 450 hectares of vineyards, scattered across almost 1,000 different plots. Protected by the imposing Massís del Port, where the Terra Alta plain meets the Canaletes river valley, the area is less dry than the usual Mediterranean-climate zone. Soils are basically composed of limestone.

As for cultivars, they include the local varieties Grenache, White Grenache, Hairy Grenache, Carignan, Macabeo and Moscatel, as well as the international ones Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, TempranilloChardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

The grapes are vinified in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature. Aging of the wines takes place in French oak barrels. It is worth mentioning that celler Sant Josep Vins produces also sweet wines, rancio wines and a high-quality olive oil.
