Domaines Lupier is run by Enrique Bastarte and Elisa Ucar who have a great passion for vines, soil and wine. For those indescribable bottles that are a joy to the senses and constitute one of the great pleasures of wine. Enrique is passionate about viticulture! Time flies for him when he’s studying soils, clones, climates and how varieties adapt to each terroir.

With over fifteen years experience in vineyards all over Spain and an academic background in agronomical engineering and oenologist studies, Enrique decided, with Elisa, to start Domaines Lupier using one of the grapes they both love: Garnacha. Elisa holds a degree in Economics and Business Administration and an MBA from the IESE Business School, and has more than 12 years experience in the wine sector.

Four years ago they started rescuing small parcels of very old Grenache for Domaines Lupier and now they have 27 different parcels with vines going back to over 100 years. At 400 to 750 meters above sea level, the climate is relatively cool and the various soils and exposures give grapes that offer a wide flavour spectrum for the production of two simply stunning wines.

From the very beginning, in keeping with the spirit of their project, Enrique and Elisa decided to build Domaines Lupier in the vicinity of their vines. Thus, they acquired and renovated an old 19th century manor house, where they built a small cellar that accommodates small vats of 3,500 and 5,500 litres and with the capacity for 50,000 bottles, and equipped with the latest technology. Ageing takes place in fine French oak barrels and is constantly kept under close supervision.
