Venus La Universal is a red wine produced by the winery Venus La Universal in Falset, D.O. Montsant.

 

Venus La Universal is the winery of Sara Pérez and René Barbier. Trained in the respective family wineries of Priorat (Clos Martinet and Clos Mogador), in 1999 they decided to start this professional and vital project in Montsant.

La Universal is the small 4-hectare plot where the wines of Sara and René are born from. Through organic agriculture, with maximum respect for the environment, optimising energy and resources in all the production processes, they make wines with great character, faithful to the terroir where they come from.

 

Venus La Universal is a wine made from Carignan, Grenache and Syrah from a vineyard located at the top of a hillside with both orientations, north and south. The soils are clayey-calcareous, deep and humid.

Harvest is performed by hand. All the varieties ferment together, if the vintage allows it. Whole grapes and some stems from the Grenache. It is fermented with wild yeasts, and with a slight pigeage (submerging the cap). The maceration is carried out for 28-32 days in wooden vats and 500-litre open barrels. The ageing takes place for 20 months in 4000-litre wooden vats, and one part in 300-litre barrels.

Sara Pérez is one of today’s most prominent names of the Spanish wine scene. Part of the renowned Pérez Ovejero family, her father José Luis led the Priorat revolution back in the 80s, and she runs the Venus la Universal winery, in Montsant with her partner René Barbier Jr. A cool, young winery that works ecologically and sustainably to produce authentic terroir wines.
Pictures and situation Venus La Universal
Montsant is situated in the province of Tarragona, surrounding the DOQ Priorat. Although a young Denominación de Origen, Monstant is located in a land with a large history in winemaking. The wines, mostly reds, are typically made with Grenache and Carignan grapes and are authentic, wild and artisanal. Wines produced in this region are usually extremely good value given the high quality.
