Joan de la Casa

Joan de la Casa


Like so many other Spanish winemakers, Joan was born into a winemaking family, learning how to make wine from his Grandfather. In 2013, he embarked on his own project in Benissa Marina Alta, just north of Alicante.

His philosophy is simple. Treat the vines well, build a strong ecosystem with reliance on nature rather than chemicals (of which none are used). In the cellar, Joan only uses natural yeasts and resists using any additives at all, to ensure his wines are pure and clearly reflect the special terroir of his vineyards.

Joan is a big fan of indigenous grape varieties, including the unknown Giro and the aromatic Moscatel, both widely planted in the Alicante region.

  • The vineyards
    • Vines are up to 80 years old with low yielding fruit.
    • The soil is largely chalk and limestone which helps to keep the wines fresh.
    • Joan’s vineyards are very close to the Mediterranean, its cooling breezes and temperate climate giving balance to his wines.
