About Mas Martinet
Nestled in the heart of the ancient Priorat region in Catalonia, Mas Martinet is a winery that combines traditional winemaking techniques with an innovative, forward-thinking approach. Established in 1979 by the family of renowned winemaker, Josep Lluis Perez, this vineyard has grown into one of the most respected names in the Spanish wine industry.
The winery's landscape is marked by the rugged terrain and stark beauty of the Priorat region. The vineyards are planted on steep, sloping hills, with a diverse amalgam of soil types ranging from the slate known as llicorella, to chalky clay. This unique terroir contributes to the distinct minerality and intensity that characterise Mas Martinet’s wines.
True to their philosophy of respecting nature, Mas Martinet utilises biodynamic farming practices to cultivate their vines, and no synthetic pesticides or fertilizers are employed. This commitment to sustainability is reflected in their wines, which are imbued with a vibrant intensity and a true expression of the terroir.
Their most sought-after wines include the Mas Martinet Menut - a blend of Garnacha, Carinena and Syrah; and the Mas Martinet Clos Martinet - a striking blend of Grenache, Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon, grown from the estate’s oldest vines. These expressions are renowned worldwide for their balance, elegance and complexity.
A visit to Mas Martinet is a journey into the heart of Catalan winemaking. Here, visitors can embark on a guided tour of the vineyard, indulge in a tailored wine tasting experience, or even participate in the harvesting process during vintage. However, it's the unbeatable view from the hilltop vineyard, overlooking the quaint villages of the Priorat region, that truly captivates the attention of those who venture here.
In conclusion, a bottle from Mas Martinet doesn’t simply provide a taste of their wine, it offers a taste of the land, the history and the passion of the people who nurture the vineyards every day.
