Ramón Jané, who is 1/2 of Mas Candí and one of the warmest farmer-winemakers working in the Penedès. Whereas the wines of Mas Candí strive for an accomplished, more classical style, Ramón’s solo work is more like flashes of brilliance and joy. At their best, the wines almost tumble from your glass or porrón into your gullet without much resistance. It takes a lot of training and vintages to make wines that feel this breezy and effortless, and we couldn’t be prouder to offer them — especially from the stellar 2021 vintage, made all the more special by the disastrous hailstorms just last month that took production of nearly 80% of Ramón’s 2022 fruit. If you’re a fan of his wines, this is likely your best chance to snag some for a while.
