Lagravera

Lagravera is an organic and biodynamic winery in Costers del Segre


Lagravera means "gravel pit" in Spanish, and on some properties where vines and fruit trees were originally cultivated, it was more lucrative for the Arno family's construction company to mine stones and gravel. That doesn't sound very romantic, but wine from this area wasn't worth much back then, and neither was the environment.

That only changed after the new Denominacion "Costers del Segre", ie a quality wine region, was created in 1988 and the environmental awareness of the Arno family ordered itself to compensate for the damage caused.

Since they were not farmers or oenologists themselves, they put together a competent team of agronomists and oenologists under the direction of Pilar Salillas and gave them the task of re-cultivating old and existing vines and planting new vines, without using chemical aids or fertilizers to use and to produce independent high-quality organic wines and finally biodynamic wines from the grapes.

For the actual winemaking, they rebuilt a building that had been used by the construction company until then, which doesn't look like a winery at all, and equipped it with all modern equipment necessary for the preparation of good wines.

This is how the Lagravera team introduces itself


We are scientists by training and farmers by calling.
Both worlds meet in Lagravera, where we all observe and accompany our production processes, which are as natural as possible, without foregoing the latest technical advances and thus ensure the high quality of the biodynamic wines.

At our winery we work with a philosophy of maximum respect for natural processes that follows biodynamic principles certified by Demeter.
The energy of the moon affects everything, people, animals and plants. We are guided by its phases in order to optimize our vineyards and the quality of our biodynamic wines. Its effect on nature allows us to have healthy and strong soil on which to cultivate the vine.
