La Comarcal is a small project by two good friends who just happen to be two of eastern Spain’s most talented viticultors: Javi Revert and Victor Marqués.

Located in the mountainous village of Venta del Moro in the Valencia D.O., La Comarcal (“The District”) is a young winery founded in 2017 with the inspiration of making delicious, youthful wines—new expressions based on the old mountain vineyards of native Valencian grape varieties they farm with certified organic viticulture and native yeasts, utilizing only a judicious amount of sulfur. They focus on regenerative agriculture in every aspect of their work. From researching the best locations to replant native varieties to replace the once-dominant international varieties to working with traditional mixed-agriculture farming and planting trees, Javi and Victor are lifelong students of their natural environment with the winemaking experience to make a significant impact in their region. It shows in the energy and transparency of the project, as this winemaking duo is among the most exciting teams to watch in Spain.

Winemakers: Javi Revert and Victor Marqués

Farming: Organic

Varieties: 95% Merseguera / 5% Chardonnay

Soil / Terroir Vineyards are planted on limestone-rich calcareous clay soil at an altitude of around 600 meters, with a continental climate heavily influenced by the Mediterranean Sea.

Vinification: After a rigorous selection in the vineyard, each varietal is hand-harvested separately and whole bunches are pressed in a pneumatic press. Chardonnay is fermented in used 500L foudres with native yeasts, followed by six months in the same barrels on the fine lees without bâtonnage. Merseguera is fermented with native yeasts and aged in concrete tanks for six months. The two varieties are then blended and rested before a very light filtration, but no fining, before bottling.

Aging: Six months on lees in concrete and oak foudres

Tasting Notes: well-balanced and exotic, with notable texture and energy, a perfect accompaniment to the incredible foods of Valencia. 

Vegan.
