The Foraster family has run this estate for over 150 years. Three generations have already dedicated their lives to viticulture. They practice organic agriculture in line with their respect for nature and their desire to protect the local environment and preserve it for future generations.
All visits to the winery are led by a member of the family, which offers a personal touch to visitors who want to practice enotourism. At the entrance to the winery there is a small museum where you can see perfectly-restored traditional tools used by the Foraster family in the field. This way they preserve their origins and the work of their ancestors.
The winery as we know it today was conceived of in 1998. In that year the family began to make and bottle wine from the grapes they previously used to sell in bulk.
The winery currently has 34 hectares and produces 160,000 bottles a year. Recently, the family has created a line of very young wines called Els Nanos (the dwarves), ideal for attracting newer generations to the world of wine.
Another pillar of the Josep Foraster cellars are the wines made from autochthonous trepat grapes. This is a variety that, until a few years ago, had been scorned and largely forgotten. Thanks to the efforts of a few wineries in the DO Conca de Barberà region, it has now gained its due and is recognized as one of the distinguishing features of this appellation.
The winery also produces olive oil from the arbequina variety.
The visit begins with a walk through the vineyards, followed by a visit to the grape reception area and the vinification room, which used to be an old henhouse. We then move on to the ageing room with concrete eggs and French oak barrels, a quiet room where the wine sleeps and which gives off the typical smell of oak wood from the barrels.
We offer different visit formats: you can visit the winery and taste either two or four wines. We also offer the option of a country breakfast with typical products from the area (bread with tomato and olive oil, a variety of local sausages and cheeses, olives, almonds…), all paired with our Josep Foraster wines.
We propose two options for rounding off your day after the visit: from the winery you can take the GR-171 route and visit the nearby Sant Josep hermitage. Once at the chapel, you can continue for another 2.5 kilometers until you reach the Cascada de la Vall waterfall.
Another option is a cultural tour of the historic centre of Montblanc and along the old patrol path on the walls. The tour includes food tastings accompanied by wine from the DO Conca de Barberà in various establishments around the town. Reservations can be made at the Montblanc Tourist Office.
As you can see, the proposals for wine tourism and experiences at Josep Foraster are unique!
