Characteristics of Donyet
Donyet is a red wine from the Montsant produced by the Venus La Universal winery. It is a blend of Grenache (30%), Carignan (30%), Merlot (20%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) varieties.
This wine is made from grapes from strains of around thirty years, grown on a farm in the town of Falset, where there is a predominance of granitic soil.
The vineyards are worked as organically as possible, while respecting the environment. Donyet is made with yeast, lactic bacteria and fruit acids.
Donyet is aged before marketing, for ten months in French oak barrels.
Donyet is the result of a collaboration between renowned winemakers Sara Pérez and René Barbier. This wine takes its name from a small elves or "donyets" - which, according to myth, attempt to ride horses during the night, holding on to their manse. Venus La Universal is an artisan winery, in which Sara Pérez and René Barbier seek to bring the essence of Montsant in each glass of wine using sustainable methods.
