A brilliant and intense rosé from a family run winery in the lower Penides on the Spanish coast near the old Roman capital of Tarragona. The vines that grow the grapes for Rosat Seleccio are planted at sea level and up to 700 metres above, allowing the Ubeda family to make fresh wines with good acidity.
The Ubeda family have been immersed in viticulture for over a century and have run their own vineyards and winery since the 1950s. Each generation of the Ubeda have treated the wines and vines as a way of life based on respect for their unique natural environment. Today the vineyard is managed by Gerard Jané Ubeda, an oenologist who is working towards having the estate certified organic.
