Avgvstvs Forvm

Cellers AVGVSTVS FORVM is a little winery with a lot of history, located in the Penedés wine region (Tarragona, Spain). When they first planted their vines back in 1983, they discovered what it used to be the old roman road between Rome and Cádiz: the Via Avgvsta, which nowadays gives the name to their company and their vinegars: Avgvstvs and Forvm.

The wineries AVGVSTVS FORVM are located near the village of Sant Vicenç de Calders, in the municipality of El Vendrell, the capital of Baix Penedés region. They are a family-owned business but opened mind to the global market and its new tendencies. Along their short history they have specialized in limited productions of high quality wines and bittersweet gourmet vinegars which nowadays they export over 30 countries. Their vinegars have inspired well known chefs to elaborate their exquisite dishes, such as Ferran Adrià, Carme Ruscalleda, Sergi Arola, Jean Louis Neichel or as an ingredient of the Nobel Prizes ceremony menu.

History and philosophy

Waiting to follow in the footsteps of their ancestors, a property named Òles Devesesó was acquired in the early 80s in the village of St. Vicenç de Calders, in the locality of El Vendrell, in the Baix Penedés (Taragona). At the end of that decade, after having transformed the entire property into vineyards, and with the hope and conviction of attaining a personalized product of high quality, the laborious process of setting up infrastructures was initiated. At the same time they have been elaborating a bittersweet vinegars with the name of Forvm. Their objective is,and always will be, to operate with the instinct of a small producer.

Vineyards

Soil tends to be calcareous, with a rather gritty texture and with a certain amount of stones. At Les Deveses estate, it can be said that they have their own microclimate, since they are 3 kilometers from the sea, which has a significant bearing on them.

The high temperatures during the the day and the afternoon and evening breezes enable them to reach a high degree of maturation with very good vigour. Such noble variety grapes as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay have adapted perfectly to our microclimate and soil.

Visits

The winery can be visited form Monday to Sunday. Although usually no booking is required, it is recommended to call in advance, specially for groups.
