The Celler Clos d'Agon was purchased by a group of friends from Switzerland in 1998, making a dream become reality for the new owners, all of whom are attached to the wine business either through distributing, retail sales or winery ownership. The winery itself is only 11 years old. Immediately hired was wizard winemaker, Peter Sisseck, to produce the first vintage of white and red, and who continues on as a consultant with winemaker, Susana Lopez. Excellent results are already evident; there is a complex, sophisticated white wine and a deeply concentrated, expressive red wine.
The estate is breathtaking – located on the hills above the village of Calonge, in the region of Bajo Empordá (80 km north of Barcelona), overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, which is only 3 km away. The vineyards are located in the heart of the natural park of 'Les Gaverres" in the Catalan granitic massif of Girona.
The climate is Mediterranean and mild and is balanced by the proximity of the sea, which ensures minimum moisture at night throughout the summer. This allows the grapes to ripen evenly during the season without the stress due to high heat.
Deep red color. Nose of red fruits and black pepper. Potent
tannins in the mid-palate. Pairs well with Carnes de caza, jamón
iberico or Manchego.
