Mission

Edetària's mission is to be a leading project in the DO Terra Alta and in Catalonia, to become a wine of outstanding quality which expresses the terroir and the personality of the wine-maker.

 

The name

WINE WHICH EXPRESSES A TERROIR
Wine is from the land and each wine is an expression of a terroir in the widest sense: soil, climate and tradition. That is why we respect nature to the utmost, work in a sustainable way and look for the maximum expression and authenticity of our terroirs.

A VINTNER'S WINE
A wine is the reflection of its creater, designer and producer.
We care for our vineyards and from them make wines with a marked personality. Our quality control during production is strict but this does not stop us from improvising, enabling us to experiment creatively to achieve the very best results.

 

Vocation

The first documented historical references to vineyards in the Terra Alta date from the year 1185, when, after reconquering the territory, Count Ramon Berenguer IV ordered the area to be replanted with vineyards.

However, archeological finds show evidence of inhabitation by Iberian (pre-Roman) tribes and therefore vineyards were probably first planted durint Roman times.

During that period, when one of the capitals of the Roman empire was Tarraco (now called Tarragona), trading with the inland regions was carried out from Dertosa (now called Tortosa) harbour via the Ebro.

However, during the summer, when water levels were too low for merchant vessels, trade took place by land along the "via Edetana", which crossed our vineyards, linking Caesaraugusta (Zaragoza) and Dertosa (Tortosa).

Edetària reflects the name of this trade route and honours our Mediterranean, where wine has been one of the principal products throughout recorded history.
