Joan de la Casa - Spain
Joan de la Casa has a winemaking family tradition. His grandfather was the pioneer growing wines in the Marina Alta region in Alicante, Spain. He inherited his passion for wine and in the 2010s he continued the family business. It was in 2013 when he first released his wines into the market.
Joan’s vineyards are close to the Mediterranean Sea between 60 and 160 meters high.
Here the soil is formed by marine sediment and is rich in stones called tap and fiter by the locals. The climate is warm and with not great temperature differences between night and day. The sea wind called Llebeig makes this land perfect for growing the autochthonous varieties Moscatel de Alejandría and Giró.
Joan likes to work his vineyards organically, no chemicals used neither in the vineyard nor the cellar, no intervention, no corrections.
The winery produces three wines: a red single varietal wine called Terra Fiter elaborated with the Giró grape, a Moscatel de Alejandría white wine macerated on the skins for a few days called Nimi and finally a sweet wine produced with Moscatel called Nimi Naturalment Dolç.
