Forward Gourmet is a Catalan company representing family-owned wineries from the Penedès and the Priorat regions that produce extraordinary wines and cava; a number of which are artisan, organic or organically farmed. This time, we are happy to introduce Cava Jaume Giro i Giro, Bolet Wine & Cavas and Josep Gómez Puig.
Jaume Giró i Giró is one of the most historic cellars in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia. The family enterprise started in the middle of the 19th century by their farming ancestors. It is known for the production of hand produced cavas in very limited quantities. Nowadays, the company is directed by the enologist, Ramon Giró Gramona, the third generation of the family who has impelled it forward in the production and quality of his products.
The Bolet family has cultivated vineyards and elaborated wine for over seven generations. Over the years they planted new wines and today, they cultivate 70 hectares located in different areas and altitudes on Castellví de la Marca (Barcelona), in the heart of the Penedès region. White varieties like Macabeu, Xarel·lo, Parellada, Chardonnay, Muscat of Alexandria, Muscat de Frontignac and Gerwürztraminer and also red varietals like Tempranillo, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir are all cultivated under an organic production since 2003. They start with a through work in the vineyards to obtain the maximum quality for their wines because their philosophy is to cultivate, elaborate and commercialize only wines from their own vineyards with the maximum potential.
Josep Gómez Puig. DOQ Priorat is an exiting wine region, with black slate (licorella) and high altitudes, where cariñena, garnacha and cabernet sauvignon are grown on terraces, produced in a sustainable and artisanal way and where the outcome is a classic wine with a modern touch.

bodega were he produces full bodied red wines.
