La Figuera is a village where you can find just Garnatxa vines in lands located from 380m to 600m high. Most of them are run by the Cooperative of La Figuera, currently formed by 3 members. Venus la Universal collaborates with them to help them with their project and, in return, we rent one of their highest fields. Venus de la Figuera is a unique and magic project and allows us to continue our search on femininity and earth.
The parcel of “Guixà” has white clay and limestone soil and it is at 600m high. The altitude and the soil makes a very fine grenache with less structure and a very pronounce acidity. The field is coronate by an enormous water reserve from the irrigation community. Thanks to Lily Brick, its concrete wall is now a rural art of infinity beauty. A Venus with penetrating eyes who invites you to reflection, pause, dialog with nature and wine. A Venus who will be on the bottle in the form of a label
Grapes ferment in 500l open barrels. It is macerating for a long time, 30/35 days but with few crushed to preserve fresher and elegancy of the grenache from the high. After two fermentations we put the wine into a foudre of 2500 l. for 18 months.
