Overview

John Muir famously said, “The mountains are calling and I must go,” which is a fitting slogan for Cara Nord, a joint project of Tomas Cusine, Xavier Cepero and Eric Solomon located in the Sierra Prades. Here elevation, UV exposure and climate combine to create a refreshing take on the “classic GSG blend.” The second G stands for Garrut, an indigenous variety frequently confused with, or a local name for, Monastrell. There are partisans on both sides of the debate.
