Arketipo is a red wine coupage of the Syrah and Cariñena varieties produced by the Sota els Àngels winery in the D.O. Empordà, Catalonia.

The winery is located in an outstanding area of Les Gavarres, Girona, at the foot of the “Els Àngels” mountain, hence its name, which means “under the angels.” The project was set up by the couple María Jesús Polanco and Guy Jones, with advice from winemaker Fredi Torres. Ever since the beginning, they have chosen to work under the principles of biodynamic agriculture, with the utmost respect for the environment and the grape varieties.

The grapes used to make the Arketipo wine are harvested manually in 10 kg boxes. The clusters ferment in cement lagares with native yeasts and undergo malolactic fermentation in 500-litre barrels, only 40% of which are new, with the aim of preserving the fruit and having a better integration of the wood.

The resulting wine ages with its fine lees and with gentle periodic cap plunges. It is then bottled without filtering. In the Sota els Àngels winery, the winemaking processes are led by nature and following the lunar and natural cycles that even dictate the precise moment of bottling.

Through all of these processes, they make wines like this Arketipo, a sincere reflection of the Mediterranean landscape it comes from.

The landscape of the region of Empordà, located in the northeast of Catalonia, is full of contrasts, due to the natural limits of the Pyrenees in the north and the Mediterranean Sea and magnificent Costa Brava in the east. Thanks to these, the Empordà is a unique place, a special territory between the sea and the mountains, marked by the presence of the north wind known as Tramontana.
