REVOLT

 DO  EMPORDÀ

Between the end of January and the beginning of February 1939, nearly 500,000 people crossed the border crossings with France, fleeing the reprisals of the defeat. The Alt Empordà became the scene of an exodus of families and soldiers who returned looking for refuge and hope, including my grandfather.

reVolt is the fruit of a historic vineyard, located on the Coll de Banyuls road from Espolla, very close to the French border. An exceptional red Carignan planted in 1902 that even today remembers the passage of thousands of people along its path, an emblematic century-old vineyard with very low production that today we vinify as it has always been done, fully respecting its essence, history and quality


reVolt combines emotions and words: the turns of life, the turns or curves that we have to trace, resume the forced flight, leave home and plant the seed of revolt.
