Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Missenyora is an organic, single-variety Macabeo white wine made by the L’Olivera cooperative in the D.O. Costers del Segre, in Catalonia.

L’Olivera is a social integration cooperative located in Vallbona de les Monges, a municipality in Lleida, Catalonia, home to the most important female monastery of the Cistercian Order, Santa Maria de Vallbona. Missenyora is the name given to the abbesses and this wine is also a tribute to an ancient tradition of making a wine known as vi bullit, which has a subtle sweet touch.

To make Missenyora, the grape bunches are harvested manually and pressed whole with the stalks. The must ferments at a controlled temperature in American and French oak barrels, at 80% and 20% respectively. There is never more than 15% new wood in order to respect the character of the variety. The wine ages on its lees for three to four months. During this time, it is stirred weekly to enhance its volume on the palate.

The wine is tested and before being bottled, a minimal amount of concentrated grape must is added, depending on how it tastes, which gives the wine a subtle sweet taste and a particular personality.

L’Olivera works to promote the social integration of underprivileged groups, who participate in every part of the production process. This same   character can be found in each and every one of the wines and oils that are made by the cooperative, with the aim of reflecting an identity and contributing to a better future.

Pictures and situation L'Olivera
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.
