About Venus La Unviersal:

Like many of the great stories, the story of Venus La Universal begins with love. As the children of two of the pioneers of the Priorat D.O., Sara Pérez and René Barbier fils grew up as neighbors, picking grapes together and looking on as their fathers, Josep Lluis Pérez of Mas Martinet and René Barbier père of Clos Mogador, boldly worked to tame that wild landscape.

Though they had known each other their whole lives, their romance did not begin until they traveled together representing their respective bodegas on a sales trip to California. They married shortly after and are now the proud parents of four young children. Though they both remain very involved in their family estates, Venus is their passion project. Set in the somewhat sleepier D.O. of Montsant, where they also make their home, it is a refuge for them from the wild vicissitudes of the international market for Priorat and the pressure that comes with the intense spotlight that shines on that region.

René and Sara have taken the goddess as their inspiration for this project. One of their stated goals is “to interpret femininity through a bottle of wine.” This might seem an odd choice for a bodega that elaborates Grenache- and Carignan-based wines in Southern Cataluña, but it makes sense once you taste. These are elegant, refined expressions of Montsant, with impeccable balance and texture.
