This winemaking tale happens in the small appellation of Conca de Barbera, located just a stone’s throw from the Atlantic Ocean in the region of Catalunya. A couple that was brought together by their love of wine. Initially the project was facilitated by “Viver de Celleristes,” a winemaking facility that allowed young entrepreneurs space to create their wines. They eventually moved to a more permanent winemaking residence in a garagiste winery. With them being so new to the Conco de Barbera appellation, other local growers assumed the couple did not know what they were doing as they were using organic methods. Mariona and Albert take part in all the work together. The wines are made in a natural manner, which is progressively becoming more and more of a focus in The New Spain.
Cuca de Llum means lightworm and refers to the winemakers who saw a lightworm one night when they went to the vineyards to sample fruit. The wine drinks like the reds of Alto Adige or Jura. The winemaking is a little quicker, as the juice only spends five months on the lees in steel before being released.
