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 Imports
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 Comunica
Celler Comunica wines are almost the opposite of what’s become typical across the border in Priorat. Pep and Patri use no oak at all; they prize freshness and bright clean fruit over dry extract and high alcohol.
The wines are immensely sluggable and thirst quenching, and provide a fascinating insight a terroir that’s too often hidden behind alcohol and oak. Harvesting with them this year was an absolute treat!
