Meet the faces behind the wine
The Tierra Alta Cooperative of La Pobla de Massaluca was founded in 1963 to be able to confront with greater force and power the monopoly exercised by a small number of individuals.
Currently the winery of the Cooperativa de La Pobla de Massaluca has suitable facilities for receiving the grapes once they have been harvested after the harvest; for the production of must in a controlled fermentation process, and for storage and fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
The selection of the wines for their subsequent bottling is carried out through a rigorous oenological control process, both for young wines and for aging wines. The winery produces around 11,000 hl of wine per year and is sized to process a maximum of 15,000 kg of grapes / hour.
The Cooperativa de La Pobla de Massaluca has its own vineyards located in the DO Terra Alta region. With an area that occupies 240 hectares. The farmland is located in the municipalities of La Pobla de Massaluca, Bat and Vilalba dels Arcs.
Today, Caterra (commercial name of the cooperative) has approximately 565 ha of cultivation, of which 325 ha are olive trees and the remaining 240 ha are vineyards registered with the Terra Alta Designation of Origin. The remaining crops are dedicated to almond and olive, two consolidated commercial pillars of Caterra.
