MAS BLANCH I JOVÉ has participated in the project TROBAT – New products for the Costers del Segre, DO. New elaborations with the recovered variety Trobat, in organic farming. You can find more information here.
Operation 16.01.01 of Cooperation for innovation of the Rural Development Program of Catalonia 2014-2020.
The Trobat is an old variety of black grape very characteristic of Lleida. It is used to make wine and results in red, light wines with a particular flavor. Currently, its cultivation is in strong regression and it only survives in some vineyards dedicated to self-consumption.
The objectives of the project are:
- Introduction of new products on the market: organic monovarietal trobat wines, a variety of Vitis vinífera that has historically been widely cultivated throughout the DO territory and is currently in danger of disappearing.
- Genetic enrichment of the productive potential of the DO, with a better typification of a variety linked to the territory, which allows giving the final consumer a more precise idea of the different “lands” of the DO.
- Enrichment of the tools available to the sector, wineries and winegrowers, to obtain products with greater added value.
The objective of the technical monitoring is the agronomic and oenological evaluation of a variety historically present in the territory of the DO Costers del Segre and that is currently in danger of disappearance in this same territory.
