TOMÀS CUSINÉ, THREE DECADES IN THE WORLD OF WINE
Born in 1962, Tomàs Cusiné Barber is one of the best-known and renowned oenologists and wine producers in Catalonia.
He started out in the world of wine after his family bought Castell del Remei in 1982, moving away from the family firm in 2003 to start up his own projects: the wineries of Tomàs Cusiné and Cara Nord, putting into practice his own ideas about viticulture and oenology and promoting ecological principles, the utmost quality and technical innovation through research.
As president of the Lleida-Costers del Segre Wine Route, Cusiné is also involved in boosting the county’s wine tourism, promoting visits to wineries and vineyards, themed routes, tastings and other activities.
In October 2014 he returned to Castell del Remei, taking over the running of the firm and continuing to establish the direction of this historical winery, restructuring the vineyards, renewing the image of its wines and improving the estate’s wine tourism appeal.
With this addition of the family winery, Tomàs Cusiné has become the driving force behind a dynamic wine production group with four wineries Tomàs Cusiné, Castell del Remei, Cérvoles and Cara Nord. In total, these wineries produce 1,300,000 bottles of wine every year in four different appellations (Costers del Segre, Conca de Barberà, Montsant and Catalunya), which are sold in over 40 countries in Europe, Asia, America and Oceania.
After more than three decades working in the world of wine, and with 32 harvests behind him (the first one, in 1985), Cusiné has managed to make his dream come true by persevering with his beliefs, with intense dedication to his work and by putting his trust in the work of the team of professionals around him
