Carlos Esteva 是西班牙開始引領有機耕種的先驅
莊主 Carlos Esteva 是上個世紀西班牙酒界的靈魂人物，率先引進有機耕種，積極致力於原生品種的保存，也熱愛藝術文物與建築。酒莊內所有的建築都源自於數百年前的遺留，從前天主教徒在進行長距離健行時，總會提供酒莊做為給這些步行者休憩的場所，酒莊裡頭的每個酒落都充滿著靈魂與這些過路客的蹤跡，更別說每一款精釀酒的人情味了。
歐耶酒莊所在地於希臘時代就有葡萄耕種的遺跡，歷史學家發現了來自西元前 600 年的耕種活動，這裏地勢特別，有高有低、有山有海，加上北邊 Mistral 冷風長期從北邊吹拂，讓葡萄園常保通風、乾爽，提升了酒體的紮實、架構與飽滿度。海洋般吹拂的臉龐，清爽、新鮮、清脆還帶有淡淡的海味，就是這裡的風格！白酒、粉紅酒到紅酒，這裏酒款選擇很少，但每一款都是原生種極致的呈現，Picapol, Malvasia, Syrah, etc...
The Empordà is a legendary wine region where the Greeks were the first to introduce vineyards and wine around the year 600BC. Mas Oller is a historic estate located in the town of Torrent, in the province of the “Petit Empordà”, with views of the Medas Islands and the medieval walls of Pals, with the land distributed around the 17th Century farmhouse. In the 1950’s all of the old vines and olive trees were replaced with cereal and livestock. Today, the only part of the original, working traditions that still remain are the old cork oak trees that are used for the prestigious cork industry in the region. Since the 1970’s the farmhouse and the land belongs to the Esteva family. In the year 2000, Carlos Esteva – owner of the prestigious winery Can Ràfols dels Caus – decided to save the estate from its ruins, rebuilding the farmhouse with care and placing the winery in what used to be the old cowshed. He replanted the vines in what used to be the best vineyard in Pals with a desire to produce new, good quality wines using the Empordà winemaking traditions as a base, but innovating in many ways – from the vineyard to the winery. The wines from the first harvests, made from young vines, were sold in the region. Now, the vines have reached an age where the grapes that they produce have the amount of concentration that Carlos was looking for. Today, nearly 400 years after it was built, Mas Oller has been converted into a reference winery in the D.O. Empordà with wines that are made with a philosophy that leads towards singularity and the expression of where they are made.
Mas Oller is located in an area that combines sea and mountain, very marked by the presence of wind, and the north where a diversity of soils are combined: clay, sand and slate. Conceptually and geographically, the project of Mas Oller connects northern Catalonia, Empordà and Roussillon with the wines being as expressive as they are fresh. Currently, Mas Oller has 17 hectares of vineyard in production.
The three red varieties are Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon and two white varieties are Picapoll and Malvasia de Sitges. The vineyards are located around the house and the grapes are selected in the vineyard before being harvested and transported to the winery in small boxes, where it undergoes a second manual selection. All of the wines have a cold pre-fermentation period to obtain maximum expression of aroma and color.
Our philosophy is based on the recovery of the winemaking tradition of Empordà with a modern interpretation of the concept of wine.
The team is made up of Carlos Esteva, owner winemaker; Martin Cuervo y Marta Arenas , head of the vineyard and the winery; Elena Moreno, Wine Experiences; Alexandra Manovel, export; Astrid Caritg, sommelier and sales.
