About Vinyes Tortuga

Catalonia, Spain

After years of traveling the world of wine we set foot in the Empordà to realise our dream of starting our own wine project. We found a deserted plot in the Emporda of 9,5 hectares of vines that needed some TLC (tender loving care), which is what we are giving them since May 2018. We are in the conversion of becoming officially organic, but are implementing biodynamic principles as well.
Our first harvest in 2018 was a success and we didn’t have to add any sulphites or other stuff. Our style is to harvest relatively early, yielding low alcohol wines with a high acidity.
