Passionate about nature, a perfectionist and with a deep thirst for knowledge, Raül Bobet is a winemaker who has taken his enterprise to the loftiest heights by planting his vineyards in the Pyrenees area. Coming under the Costers del Segre D.O, Castell d'Encús is the personal project of this winemaker with a long-standing career and responsible too for the wines of Ferrer Bobet.
Castell d'Encús is located at an altitude of 1,000 metres, in a privileged setting which offers good sun exposure and considerable variation in day and night temperatures. On loamy calcareous soils containing little organic matter, the estate comprises 23 hectares of vineyards planted with varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Semillon and Albariño. Sited in the parcels are also a number of old fermenting vats carved into the rocks in the 12th Century which are nowadays in use again in the fermentation process, along with the wooden and stainless steel vats.
As well as reviving the oldest methods known, the winery is also characterised by its use of the most advanced technology and a philosophy based on research and experimentation. This all results in wines with a style of their own, fresh, complex and with great personality.
