Sarau, RIM Vins
RIM Vins i Vinyes is a natural wine project set up by grower Jordi Esteve Xifra that was born of his interest to “know the history of Rabós d’Empordà and recover forgotten vineyards”. Stunningly characterful and terroir-driven wines. Jordi cultivates a number of indigenous varieties across the slatey terrains of Empordà, including Grenache, Carignan and Macabeu.
Working with 8 hectares of vines, he adopts a sustainable approach to farming and a fully natural vinification process in the cellar. His wines are lightly extracted, complex and an absolute joy to drink.
