La Comarcal is a small project by two good friends…

who also happen to be two of Spain’s brightest rising-star winemakers: Javi Revert and Victor Marqués. Located in the village of Venta del Moro in the Valencia D.O., La Comarcal (“The District”) is a young winery founded in 2017 with the inspiration to make delicious, youthful wines—new expressions based on the old mountain vineyards of native Valencian grape varieties. They farm with certified organic viticulture, exclusively use native yeasts, and employ only judicious use of sulfur. La Comarcal was built on the friendship formed by Javi and Victor while working together at the influential Valencian winery Celler del Roure for over ten years. They represent the new generation from Valencia focused on regenerative farming and exceptional quality while retaining the approachability and relaxed attitude of their laid-back Mediterranean region.

Calling themselves “traveling winemakers,” the two friends are constantly exploring their region together in search of unique plots of land with stories to tell. Their philosophy is to utilize natural farming methods to deliver clear, expressive translations of their landscape and shared moments with good food with friends.  

Javi Revert comes from a long line of Valencian winemakers, working with historic vineyards originally planted by his great grandfather. Victor Marqués has worked with several prestigious winemaking cooperatives over the years, in addition to his work at Celler del Roure. Both bring an incredible amount of experience, talent, and passion to their work in exalting the diversity of their native Valencian region. 

The entries into their range are the village wines named Delmoro. Delmoro Blanco comes from vineyards near the village of Venta del Moro, a blend of young and old vines from the indigenous merseguera and chardonnay. Vineyards are planted on calcareous clay soil at an altitude of around 600 meters, with a continental climate heavily influenced by the Mediterranean Sea. Delmoro Blanco is well-balanced and exotic, with notable texture and energy, a perfect accompaniment to the incredible foods of Valencia. 

Delmoro Tinto comes from vineyards near the village of Venta del Moro between 15 and 50 years old. The garnacha that makes up 85% of the blend comes from a 4ha single vineyard called Guindal planted in 1987 at 600m. Bush-trained, old-vine syrah makes up the remainder of the blend. Delmoro Tinto is a Mediterranean red with great freshness and balance, with a fruit-driven, approachable palate perfect for just about any food pairing. 

While this is just the beginning for Javi and Victor’s La Comarcal, the two “traveling winemakers” are already authoring some of the Valencia region’s most exciting wines.
