Trip Report Spanish winery hides in plain sight

Jump to last reply

Finding the new Costa Brava winery Terra Remota is as much a challenge as its name implies. It is sheltered by undulating vineyards and twisty rural roads about half way between Figueres and the French border. Almost as if hiding, the concrete bunkers of the winery hunker down into a hill like an anti-tank installation. Its blank walls help control the interior temperatures; this is modern wine-making, with computer-monitored techniques for grapes are still harvested by hand. The guide said much of the wine is sold in advance in Spain and France, especially to high-end restaurants. Its website's customer list for Girona alone names enough Michelin-starred restaurants to light up the night. Tours, reserved in advance, can include a picnic in the vineyard with a spread of local meats and cheeses (this is, after all, ham heaven.) as well as a tasting that includes a bit of its product from Chile. The website offers picnic tours for two at 42 euros. What a nice day in the country!
About the wines, from a non-expert: North American palates have come to expect the big, fruity impact of New World wineries. Not here. The wines are restrained, but not in the austere style of their French neighbours to the north. Let me say – sniff, sniff – as soft as a caress. Too much? Okay, quiet, firm,, smooth. Wish I could find them in North America.
