About Vila Viniteca : an established family-run business since 1932, has its head office in Barcelona’s old quarter, just two minutes’ walk from the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar. In the 1990s, Francisco Martí and Quim Vila, the co-owners, together set up their venture and transformed what was a delicatessen and wine shop into a flourishing wine merchant business. A wine-grower for many years now, Francisco Martí is the owner of Ca N’Estruc, a historic Catalonian wine estate with records dating back to 1548. Together they sought to rescue old plots of vines and abandoned grape varieties, and in 1998, thanks to their efforts, new, contemporary exciting wines such as Paisajes and Viña al Lado de la Casa burst onto the scene. The Uvas Felices project had been born.
