Long overshadowed by Priorat, its close neighbor to the east, the region of Montsant has its own unique character, highlighted by bright red clay, chalk, and granite soils. Celler Comunica is a small winery in Montsant started by Patri Morillo and Pep Aguilar in 2010. They first bonded as students on the commuter train between Barcelona and Catalonia, and ended up as roommates. After they finished their studies, Patri and Pep formed their own oenology consultancy which evolved into the creation of their own label. Comunica (meaning "the (phone) line is busy") comes from the Fontanals-Baboixos estate vineyards, a showcase of decomposed granitic soils, moderate climate, and old vines. 100% grenache gris, this light-and-lively red really highlights the crunchy granite soils of the area, hence the name ‘Gris Granit’. Translucent ruby in color, it offers up lovely tannin and acidity around a core of shimmering red fruits of pomegranate and cranberry. Organically grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
