Today, Catalan wine is better than ever. This is not an impassioned exaggeration
but a tangible fact.
As geographer Joan Nogué would say, the Catalan winegrowing landscape is impregnated with social, cultural, historical, aesthetic and, even, spiritual, values. Catalan wines are now a focus for those who want to drink a landscape and help strengthen the often undervalued links to working the land, the real everyday heroes, the farmers working poor soils, those according to Pla - real creators of landscapes.
