Against the natural park of Montsant, in Priorat we find La Figuera. In this small village is Ficaria Vins, a small family business where Jaume and his wife Montse make fantastic wine.
With only 4 hectares of vineyards, production in this rugged area is extremely limited, but what a wines they will be! Jaume tries to let nature take its course, to express the wines as pure as possible and to let the terroir speak. Priorat and Montsant are Garnatxa, which is why all wines from Ficaria are also Garnatxa focused with some Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon here and there for extra spiciness and power.
Each wine also tells its own story. Pater, made in honor of Jaume's father. One of the wines, Èlia, is named after his daughter and two after his son Jaume, who was nicknamed Maraketa when he was a child who kept on babbling... in Catalan a matraketa! But when the rest of the family wanted another wine to their name, he decided to name the top wine Familia.
