Sara Pérez is the wife of Rene Barbier who makes the famous Clos Mogador, Espectacle and Manyetes. Sara Pérez is also in charge of the Clos Martinet family estate. She also works closely with her brother Adria on Cims de Porrera. Father José Luis Pérez, one of the most important figures in the Spanish wine world, is proud of his children. He himself remains active in various wine projects. Together with her husband René Barbier (Clos Mogador), Sara Pérez owns and vinifies beautiful wines at Venus La Universal. As a tribute to every small food manufacturer from the 1920s who wanted to grow up, Sara has christened this mini-domain Compania Universal de Vinos.

The phenomenal Venus de La Figuera 2016 has the sharpness of the limestone soils and the acidity of the year and the height of the vineyard. In the great year 2016, Sara produced 3,000 bottles. Crispy, elegant Garnacha with citrus freshness. Great Garnacha from La Figuera.

The Venus La Figuera is the flagship and comes from the vineyard "Guixà" on a soil type consisting of white clay and limestone and is located at an altitude of 600 meters. The altitude and soil makes a very fine grenache and a pronounced acidity. The grapes ferment in 500 liter open barrels. It macerates for a long time, 30/35 days and grapes are hardly crushed in order to preserve the freshness and elegance of the grenache on a high altitude vineyard. After fermentation, the wine matures for a minimum of 18 months in a 2500 l foudre. and this is also the maximum production. 94/100 Parker.

Of course this is also an organically produced wine made purely with nature.
