Dasca Vives is a family farm located just south of Barcelona and 20 kilometers from the Mediterranean Sea in an area of Catalonia known as the Alt Camp. Josep Dasca and Alba Vives a forestry engineer and agricultural engineer/enologist, have converted the family land where they were raised completely to biodynamic farming principles. Dasca Vives wines are rare, beautiful, and truly artisanal.
The vineyards of Dasca Vives are home to vines as old as 65 years and produce magnificent wines from native varieties such as Macabeu, pre-phylloxera Vinyater, and a local strain of Tempranillo called Ull de Llebre, to name a few. International varieties such as Garnacha and Cabernet Sauvignon are also grown and blended into varying styles of spicy reds in addition to this playful sparkling Petillant Naturel (known as Ancestral Spain) made from the local Cartoix grape.
The wines of Dasca Vives are treated with the same respect in the winery as in the vineyards, allowed to ferment naturally with the yeasts on the skins, sparing use of sulfites to maintain freshness, and malolactic fermentation is allowed to occur when the temperature in the cellar dictates.
