Benastra, is first of all, a friendship story.
An adventure wich mixes passion and ambition.
Everything was born with the wish of three friends, wine enthusiasts and Roussillon’s lovers.
Together, they decided to make a bet: one day they would drink their own wine.
During the spring of 2015, the opportunity presented itself: a wine estate was waiting only for them to come back to life.
Them indeed, but a winemaker as well. A man who would love wine and the land as much as they do. Because chance does things well or precisely because there is no such thing as chance and it is simply a matter of meetings, a name came to them : Joseph Paillé.
Joseph was a talented young winemaker settled in the Loire who had travelled the world for a long time and dreamt of new horizons.
And they met.
He was charmed by the project, and fell in love with the vineyards, the exceptional beauty of the landscape. He immediately envisioned the wines he would make. The three friends were conquered. Together, they cast their gaze in the same direction: to succeed in producing over the years, a wine of character, resulting from a work of vines respectful of the environment.
Benastra, “the good star in Catalan”, gathers them and guides them all to develop elegant, authentic wines that draw their colors from the lights of the South and their strength from the winds that sweep the vines.
