Clos dAgon

There are written records that confirm the existence of a vineyard on this estate as early as the 15th century in what was the Mas Sabater. In 1792 the current farmhouse, today called Mas Gil, was built, which in ancient times was surrounded by 12 ha of vineyard, planted with hybrid varieties, narrow planting frames and goblet pruned

The modern history of the Clos d’Agon cellar begins in 1987, when the couple formed by Philippe Dambois and Danièle Bagon bought the property. Advised by the professors of the University of Montpellier André Crespy and Pierre Galet, and after a careful study of the soil and climate of the area, they decided to pull up the old vineyard and plant new varieties especially suitable for the production of quality wines

After that stage, six Swiss friends with interests in the world of wine acquired the estate in 1998, building the current winery, completing the vineyard plantation until reaching 16 ha and being advised by the prestigious winemaker Peter Sisseck

Currently two of those six friends, Alfons Niedhart and Juerg Maurer, own the property of Bodegas Clos d’Agon and, since 2008, the technical management has been in the hands of winemaker Miguel Coronado

The cellar

A modern attractive building integrated into its surroundings

Designed by the architect Chus Manzanares, also the architect of others such as Enate, Aalto, Pago de los Capellanes or l’Ermita, the Clos d’Agon cellar is located in the center of the vineyard

It is a modern construction but integrated into its surroundings, slightly inspired by the work of Piet Mondrian

Peter Sisseck participated very actively in the operational design, in order to achieve the most rational development of the work possible. For example, the grape reception area is on a higher scale, allowing us to work by gravity in almost the entire process

We could say that the only technology used during the work carried out in the cellar is temperature control. The fermentation rooms have thermoregulated steel tanks and the aging room and the warehouse are fully air-conditioned

Construction work started in 2002 and ended in 2006

The vineyard

Its location, characteristics and management

The vineyard is located at the source of “Les Gavarres”, surrounded by the hills of this natural area, which make up a kind of amphitheater facing the sea. It has a Mediterranean climate influenced by the Tramuntana (here already attenuated) and the breezes from the Mediterranean, which can be seen from all the plots

The vines grow in clay and slate soils with a mainly North – South orientation. The altitude of the plots ranges from 40 to 140 m

The red varieties used are Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot and the white Viognier, Marsanne and Roussane

We have recently reconverted some plots to plant Grenache red, white and gray

 

 

Work in the vineyard

Under the precepts of Integrated Production

We work in Integrated Production, sustainable and rational agriculture

We take care of the vineyard as if it were a garden, working mainly manually, trying to give it conditions that avoid synthetic chemical treatments

The plants are pruned during the vegetative rest using a “double Guyot” system without return thumbs

During vegetative growth, work carefully, removing excess shoots, clearing clusters and defoliation

The harvest takes place at the optimum moment of maturation of the grapes, manually and being deposited in stackable boxes of 15 kg capacity

It is known to us that great wines are made in the vineyard and not in the cellar

The environment

Baix Empordà, Costa Brava, Gavarres, Calonge

Clos d’Agon is located in the beautiful area of Calonge, on the Catalan Costa Brava. Historical olive trees, cork oaks and other native trees set their sights on a legendary culture already related to wine. Around 500 years ago, vineyards were cultivated in this place

The total surface of the property covers around 42 hectares, of which approximately 16 are planted with vineyards

Around we can find the towns of Calonge and Sant Antoni, Platja d’Aro or Palamós, among others

The recreational, cultural and gastronomic offer of this area is practically endless

The wines

Prestige, quality and variety

In the Clos d’Agon cellars we elaborate different types of wines.

Clos d’Agon White and Red, made ​​with a selection of grapes  from our best plots.

Clos Valmaña Tinto, made ​​with grapes from our plots, with a Bordeaux style, where the Merlot predominates.

Amic White, Red and Rosé, made with grapes from the vineyard and a selection of grapes from vine growers in the area.

Both White and Red Clos d’Agon have received high ratings and won praise from various international journalists such as Robert Parker, Stephen Tanzer, José Peñín and Mario Scheuermann. In addition, our 2006 White Clos d’Agon was named best white wine from Spain by the Wine Advocate.

Wine Turism

Spreading our work

We enjoy our work and we like to share what we do daily with the visitor. In any case, wine tourism is not our main objective. We are wine growers with the only purpose of obtaining a wine with the highest quality and in this we concentrate our efforts.

But we are pedagogical. We serve the visitor the same people who make the wine. That is why you always have to check availability, since this will depend on the work we carry out in the winery.

You can do it directly from our form or by sending an email to info@closdagon.com. We will also offer you information about visit options and prices.

The harvest takes place between mid-August and mid-October and the winery is in full activity, involving all the staff. For this reason, visits are suspended during this time of year. The maturation of the grape is a natural process, which varies each year according to its climatology, so this period is variable year after year.

Tours and Tastings

All options at your reach

Due to the global health emergency, all visits and tastings in the cellar are temporarily suspended

In short, we wish, we will return with more force. We are renovating our wine tourism department, when we resume the tours you will find here all our options for visits, tastings and other events in the cellar and how to book them

Hope to see you soon
