Today, two fantastic wines from our friends at Saó del Coster are launched in Norway, and available from the ordering range (bestillingsutvalget) at vinmonopolet.no.
The “S” (DO Priorat) is a fantastic blend of Garnacha (65%) and Carignan (35%), great to red meat and cold cuts like spanish ham, chorizo and sausages.
The “X” (DO Rias Baixas) is an excellent Albariño (100%) from their project in Galicia. Perfect to fish, seafood, light dishes and paella.

Saó del Coster is a wine making project created in 2004 by a group of Swiss friends passionate about the Priorat and its wines. Joel Chevallaz and Michel Grupper currently lead a group of shareholders and friends, running a responsible winery which is committed to the terroir, and is in the adaptation process of integrating biodynamic principles. The professional team of Saó del Coster is made up of Xavier, Michelle and Ángel, as well as the consulting of the oenologist and biodynamic specialist, Frédéric Duseigneur, former owner of Domaine Duseigneur.
In 2010 Saó del Coster also set up its project in Galicia, DO Rias Baixas, where they produce the “X”. Thanks to this Galician project, Saó del Coster can offer its customers a quality white wine that is elaborated in one of the most renowned appellations on a national and international scale.
The Saó del Coster team works traditionally and follows a minimum intervention philosophy in terms of agriculture as well as winemaking, respects nature’s cycles, uses biodynamic treatments in its lands and animal traction and the moon calendar for all of the work in the vineyards as well as the cellar. Their dedication is based on the desire to revive a way of working that is currently rarely used, and can create deep wines with great personalities that offer pleasure to whoever drinks them.
The wines from Saó del Coster are imported in Norway by Enoteca Norge AS. You can read more about Enoteca Norge and their products on their homepage. Enoteca Norge also imports the wine from Valpanera (Italy / Friuli) and the Yo 1940 (Spain / Rioja) from Ferre i Catasus.
