Edetària produces authentic wines with indigenous grapes, searching the purest soil expression, and restoring old vines value thanks to organic winemaking South of Barcelona in Gandesa DO Terra Alta.
Joan Àngel Lliberia, Edetària’s heart and soul, started Edetària’s adventure after studying Agricultural Engineering studies in Lleida and taking a Master of Science in Wine Management at OIV (Office International de la Vigne et du vin); his first wine management professional steps took place in several wine companies in France; then he moved back to Catalunya, where he continued his career in the wine sector and later on multinational corporations.
