Moisès Virgili I Rovira is the winemaker and founder of Cellar 9+, after a career in agriculture and working with other vineyards he decided to start Cellar 9+. The organic vineyard is set not far from the Mediterranean Sea. Moisès is serious about the sustainability of the vineyard and care of the land - and this passion at Cellar 9+ is apparent because this wine is delicious; the aroma from Cartoixà is a mixture of peaches, apricot and almonds, on the palate it tastes of caramel and has fresh tannins. Pour yourself a glass and transport yourself to the sunny Spanish coast.

Produced by Vanni Nizzoli who took over his family farm and quickly went about converting it to organic - they had always farmed organically but saved any wine just for family and friends. Now they produced many wonderful natural wines, including this Lambrusco - Lambrusco is a wonderful summer fizz and great to try instead of prosecco. This wine is left to macerate on the skins for 3 days, giving it its wonderful vibrant red colour. This is wonderfully fizzy and fun.
