About us

We are a family winery which has been dedicated to the vineyard and wine for many generations. We are fortunate to have century-old vineyards; sweet and dry rancio fortified wines made by our ancestors and we work with vats and casks which have passed from generation to generation.

We would like many more generations to enjoy this legacy, and that is why we treat it with the utmost respect, although this often involves a great deal of effort.

Our products are the result of this dedication; we work honestly in order to offer wines that can express this heritage and we want everyone to enjoy them.

The winery

We are a family winery located in a historical farmhouse in which documented viticulture dates back to the 14th century. The first document that refers to this is the purchase of the vineyard in 1305. This deed begins an extensive documented relationship that attests to the long wine-making tradition of the Carreras family.

Over the centuries, the Carreras family’s estate gradually grew until, with the outbreak of the phylloxera epidemic in the late 19th century, the family was forced to sell much of the land. Many of the vineyards were bought by the Fabra family, from the Vilartolí neighbourhood. They replanted the old vines and once again started production on the land that had been devastated by the phylloxera blight.

A few years later, with the marriage of Eulàlia Carreras and Joan Fabra, the owners came together once again, and the Martí Fabra winery was born with the adaptation of the ground floor of the Carreras’ farmhouse.

The vineyards

The vineyards of our winery grow at the foot of the Albera Massif, in poor soils containing slate and granite, frequently aerated by the northerly tramuntana wind. Many these vineyards are extremely old, from 80 to more than 100 years old, with the Carignan and Grenache varieties (known as the carinyana and lledoner in Empordà) in their different variants: black, red and white.

We strive to produce a crop which is as environmentally friendly as possible: we have never used herbicides; we plough the land several times in order to aerate it and preserve the richness of the soil.  With this type of viticulture and minimising treatments, a fine ecological balance is achieved.
