About Celler Bàrbara Forés

With the name BÀRBARA FORÉS, the marriage of Carmen Ferrer and Manuel Sanmartín wanted to pay tribute to their great-grandmother Bárbara Forés, who was born in Gandesa on February 7, 1828. Bárbara Forés, the daughter of a wine merchant (Rafael Forés) and an agricultural owner (Maria Figueras), was a person of great character and had a decisive influence on her son Rafael. Rafael Ferrer Forés, a pharmacist and illustrious winegrower, built the cellar of the manor house where he started bottling wine at the end of the 19th century. Bárbara Forés, therefore, represents respect and tradition in the production of wines, passed down from generation to generation for more than a hundred years in their house. Carmen and Manolo took over the winery in the 1990s and bet on a paradigm shift, becoming Pioneers in the production of wines in the Terra Alta, with white Grenache as the backbone, and beginning a revolution in the way people interpret wine in the region. He joined the family winery Pili Sanmartn Ferrer, sixth generation from Bárbara Forés, in 2014. A new look that promotes dialogues between wine, culture, the arts, the landscape, and all aspects of daily life. Over time, they have learned to value the potential of the territory, the dignity of field work, and the importance of the Landscape in their day to day life. They commit with closed eyes to the land they inhabit.
