Celler Mas Pòlit

Historic Empordà winery. The quality and personality of the wine from the traditional and mountain vineyards.

About the winery
The MAS PÒLIT is very old country house, located in the village of Vilamaniscle, in the North-east of Catalonia, near of the French border and next to the Mediterranean Sea. MAS PÒLIT is growing 8 hectares of vineyards situated on mountain slopes, where once were cultivated in terraces, and distributed in small parcels, given the rugged terrain of the property. The vineyards grow in rocky slate soil (licorella), acid and poor, near the area of the sea, between the natural parks of the Albera and Cap de Creus. The soil type is very suitable for producing quality grapes, growing vineyards in small strain production base and reaching grapes with high concentrations of sugars and polyphenolic compounds. The climate and soil gives an original and unique personality to the fruits of our vineyards.

History & Geography
It is documented that in 1293 the territory called La Mata, now called MAS POLIT, was manor owned by the hostelry monk of Sant Pere de Rodes Monastery, who made emphyteusis contract with Bernat Carrera. And the document that attests they already cultivated vines. It was in 1572 when Antonio Heras, coming from Mas d'en Heras of Garriguella, bought the Mas. From this date Mas Pòlit has been owned by the family Heras and their descendents. In 1632, the house became the property of a grandson of Antonio Heras, Heras called Hippolytus. It was from this moment that the house took his name Mas Polit. Following the knowlege of our ancestors we strive to move forward a strong tradition rooted in the Emporda and Vilamaniscle. We can not reconstruct the past, but the past can inspire us. We try to build new worlds that include the precedents and placed next to it.
