About the Producer
Oscar cut his teeth at 4 Kilos in Mallorca under Eloi Cedo's (Chateau Paquita) wing before starting his own project in his mothers hometown of Batea. He started only making two white wines in Terra Alta and since has expanded slightly. An arid Mediterranean region, with hot days, a salty and fresh afternoon wind and cooling nights due to its elevation. These are qualities that give his wine a concentration that is in turn balanced with acidity and freshness. The region is famous for its ‘panal’ soil, one with high sand content and little water retention at the surface. Vines struggle to reach the water table deep below and the result is low production, small bunches of grapes and an intensity in flavor.
Starting in 2020 he began a new negoce project under the name "Batussa" sourcing organic grapes from Conca de Barberà and making a red-and-white duo. The idea was to make a delicious, affordable, natural wine that was fun to drink with friends in Barcelona and spread across the ocean to us here in NYC, thankfully too!
A tiny production that truly expresses his region to perfection.
