OUR STORY

OUR STORY

While suffering from a strong medical condition described as depression 18 years ago, Mark Cassar, the man behind the MARCASAR wines was given advice to walk by the sea to mitigate the effects of his trauma.

Shortly after realising the numerous benefits of these walks, Mark decided to buy fields by the sea and by what seemed like a miracle stopped all medication.

This was the beginning of his journey and passion in making wines sulphide free with no additions. ‘One thing lead to another, and now we’re here. Karma’ – Mark Cassar

The Process

Growing

No synthetic chemicals are used in the vineyards at MARCASAR and no herbicides/pesticides. A wide variety of indigenous medicinal plants and shrubs complement the terroir.

Storing

Temperature plays a key role not only when storing wine but also during fermentation. The primary benefit of using the qvevri is that the wine varies only a few degrees in winter and summer.

Bottling

Corks are 49mm of the best Sardinian material by Labrenta, individually checked against disease and IDcork coded. Process done under vacuum, no nitrogen addition. Not filtered, some deposit may occur.
