Autòcton Cellar "Mas Vilella" Tinto '17

Albert Jané grew up in El Vendrell, a small village in the province of Tarragona within Catalunya. His parents, Benjami and Maria, owned a Cava house called Jané Ventura, who’s cellar resided in the same village.

On the weekends, Albert would spend much of his time just 10 kilometers away at an old Masia (Catalan farmhouse) built in the 16th Century, called Mas Vilella. Family dinners, playing alongide his siblings, many of Albert’s most formative memories came from his time here.

Mas Vilella is more than just a Masia, it incorporates surrounding vineyards, olive trees, and forest. The rocky and sandy soils, along with the Mediterranean climate is perfectly suited to growing Bordeaux varietals.

40 years ago, Albert’s father planted Mas Vilella predominantly with Cabernet Sauvignon. A wine called Jané Ventura “Mas Vilella” was born. Within the region, and among wine enthusiasts, it became well known as one of the top reds of the region.

After the passing of Benjami, the Jané Ventura winery was split between Albert and his brother Gerard. Albert officially returned to Mas Vilella, making it his home, and creating a newly named label called Autòcton Celler.

Mas Vilella is a deeply personal wine. It represents the terroir of the Masia, but it also represents his parents hard work, his childhood, and his personal journey as a winemaker.

We are proud to introduce this wine to Chicago.

The 2017 is an incredibly impressive vintage. Made from predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon with a little splash of Sumoll, the nose has intense aromas of blackberries, raspberry, herbs and menthol. Full-bodied on the palate, with dark fruit, ripe tannins, and a long, bright finish.

Decant this bottle for an hour before drinking. Then come back for more, as this wine can develop in bottle for many years to come.
