Joan Ramon and Mari Carme launched Escoda-Sanahuja winery in 1997, embarking on a new life project. The winery grew from their dream to create naturals wines utiliziing biodinamic agriculture. Now, the next step is Tossal Gros , a restaurant within the winery that continues the philosophy of sharing a natural approach to gastronomy, using local products.
Joan Ramón Escoda
From the first moment I met him, I knew that something new and interesting would always be happening around Joan.
He’s not only a winemaker, he’s a grass-roots innovator, a radical oenologist, a sentimental husband, a stressed-out father and an absolute anarchist… totally rock and roll. If you have ever tasted his wines, you have the proof…it’s never banal.
After working as an oenologist in a large cellar in Catalunya and traveling in France, I joined the biodynamic and natural wine movement. In 1999 I began a project in my wife’s village, Conca de Barberà, located near Montblanc and in 2005 I began to produce wines without sulfites, a method I continue to this day.
My friend Laureano Serres and I founded PVN, the first association of natural wines in Spain. Each year we organize H20, a wine fair which only accepts wines without sulfites.Discover our wines
