Venus "La Universal"


"La Universal" is the small 4-hectare estate located in the Falset district where two weighty names in the wine world have come together: René Barbier (he is the 4th generation, with more than 20 years of experience in the family-run winery of Clos Mogador) and his wife, the assiduous oenologist Sara Pérez, daughter of Josep Lluís Pérez (Mas Martinet). Under the Montsant D.O, the couple have put together a joint project there, which is characterised by its adherence to the very strict parameters of organic agriculture and respect for the environment (a philosophy which is followed in the vineyard and winery, but is also carried through to logistical matters such as transport, bottling, etc.).

From using organic fertilisers and phytosanitary treatments to indigenous yeasts, Venus "La Universal" seeks to retrieve and convey all the essence from a parcel of a granite (saulo) soil, acid-based and very poor in organic material. From the fruit of this soil, the bodega makes wines bearing the names of mythical goddesses and heroines (Dido and Venus). Fresh, elegant and markedly Mediterranean, these wines enjoy recognition from critics and repeatedly appear in the top positions in quality/price rankings.
