Over the last few years, Oriol Artigas’ has become one of the most beloved natural winemakers in Catalonia, deftly capturing a clean cero-cero vibrancy in his wines, while maintaining a Mediterranean character that vividly shows their grapes’ origins. Oriol farms 12.5 hectares around the seaside town of Alella, just north of Barcelona. Farming in a fairly dry Mediterranean climate normally makes working organically relatively easy. In the 2020 vintage, climate change reared its ugly head, and mildew wiped out nearly all of Oriol’s harvest. He sent out a request for help (his “S.O.S.”) to his many grower friends throughout Catalonia and made wine with their grapes instead of his own.
