Grape harvest is one of the most magical times of the winemaking season. Hand-picking the grapes, connecting with our producers, the terroir and growing the Cosecha community year after year makes the entire harvest experience so memorable.
Whether its waking up at dawn, driving with our producers through their gorgeous vineyards or laughing at our grape-stained clothes and hands at the end of it all - we wouldn't trade the harvest experience for the world.
We're proud to have built such close and meaningful friendships with our producers, they have allowed us to make our own Cosecha series of wines with them and along the way, guaranteeing a little bit of Cosecha in every bottle we import into Ontario.

Wine Grape Harvest 2020 with Celler Pardas
We joined our dear friends and Celler Pardas producers Jordi Annan and Ramon Parera and their team at the Can Comas estate - an ancient medieval farmhouse in the Penedés region of Catalonia that the pair converted into a winemaking facility.
Cosecha Imports is releasing a collaboration wine with Celler Pardas coming to market this fall! Polar Boar 2019 is made with 100% old vine Sumoll grapes grown on slate soil near the holy mountain Montserrat only 40 minutes from Barcelona.
Polar Boar is a super bright, serious Vin du Soif - like Cru Beaujolais. Polar Boar is a crisp, delicious red with glorious fruit and minerality at its core. Ideal for all occasions and guaranteed to bring joy to any table!
Sorting through the grapes assures the best quality...

Xarel-lo 2017 is made from 100% Xarel-lo grapes . There is a fantastic intensity to the nose. Reflecting the landscape of the property, strong rosemary, fennel, white truffle, liquorice and subtle bay leaf are evident. In the mouth, the wine delivers ample weight, yet elegance. Ripe stone fruit, sesame and ginger is balanced by persistent minerality and acidity. The finish continues with liquorice and an intriguing bitterness.

Lamborghini started with tractors before car.......Who knew!
Bright violet in colour, Planella is truly Mediterranean in its proﬁle. The fragrant nose expresses notes of strawberries and ﬂowers with touches of fennel. On the palate, fresh red berries, Asian spices and anise are balanced with good minerality and acidity.
Bright and youthfully, the impressive ﬁnish provides lingering spiciness.This wine will put on weight with a few more years of bottle age but holds plenty of appeal for those who can’t wait.
ORDER PLANELLA 2018
$35.00 single bottle / $420.00 case of 12
Altaroses is made from Grenache aka Garnacha grapes, grown in limestone and clay soils. The nose is that of fresh, wild strawberries, garrigue and toasted spices. Very expressive, it has mouth-watering acidity and soft, ripe red fruits coming through on the ﬁnish. Possessing an excellent balanced structure, there is a lively interplay of acidity, tannin, fruit and alcohol.
