About The Producer
Venus “la Universal” is the project of married couple, Sara Pérez and René Barbier Jr., both offspring of influential wine producers of the Priorat D.O., Mas Martinet and Clos Mogador. Working in the Montsant D.O., they have been inspired by the goddess, with a goal to “interpret femininity through a bottle of wine”. Using organic farming and natural vinicultural practices, Sara and René aim to transport you to this corner of Montsant through each glass of wine.

Venus released its first wine thanks to a vine grower who brought old vine grapes to us. From then, we allways bet to establish very close relationships with our collaborators, rewarding their work in a just and worthy way. It allows them to follow the same philosophy and working method without penalize them. We started with just a few vine growers but the family is growing year after year. We are very happy and proud of their work, thanks to them Venus is as it is.

    Winemaker's Tasting Notes
    A juicy wine, mostly created to be paired with food, especially the Mediterranean traditional cuisine.

    95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
    The eponymous red 2018 Venus la Universal is a blend of old-vine Cariñena and Garnacha from six plots between the villages of Falset and Marçà on deep clay and limestone soils that have good humidity and allow for a long and slow ripening of the grapes, even more so in the cooler and wet 2018. 2018 wines show tension and are a bit tight, with very good complexity. In 2018 they started to do one year of foudre (after fermenting in oak vat) and one year in concrete, completing an élevage of 30 months. This is very relaxed, balanced, elegant and long, with only 13% alcohol. This is the wine that has changed the most; they harvested early to preserve the freshness after the extremely warm and ripe 2017.
