When we refer to the DO Costers del Segre we think of wines with a continental character, which in some respects is true, but extensive replantation of international grape varieties means that the majority of wines produced here lack a geographical or territorial trademark, even though the vast majority of the wines are technologically perfect. However, there are currently wineries such as Mas Blanch i Jové, Costers del Sio, L’Olivera, Lagravera and Thomas Cusiné, among others, who concentrate their effors on producing wines with what are considered varieties native to the region. However, the majority of this region is still dominated by classic international varieties.
Castell del Remei The winery is a reference in the OJ from Costers del Segre. Belonging to the family Cusiné its history goes back to small wineries that the father of Don Ignasi Vilanova Girona, held at the farm of Castell del Remei since 1780. With great knowledge of French varieties, Mr. Girona was one of the first to introduce varieties of French origin, such as cabernet sauvignon or semillon, and studying methods of production that apply in France to adapt to developing later their wines. So between the end and between the nineteenth and early twentieth century Castell del Remei won many international awards and is considered today as the first winery Catalan winemaking in foster care. The company, after the death of the two brothers became Girona corporation, until in 1982 it was acquired by Cusiné family, who converted it entirely to early '90s, reviving the vineyards, investing in essential equipment, new barrels and bottling line completely actualizada.La Finca del Castell del Remei consists of numerous buildings, once inhabited by more than 50 families in which the Castle stands today, the Sanctuary of Remei, restaurant, oil mill, the flour, the winery, a distillery, workshops, etc..
