In 1996, after finishing her degree in Biology, Sara Pérez decided to return to the wine region of Priorat as a winemaker.
There, under her father’s guidance, she took part in that year’s harvest and started the adventure in the « Cims de Porrera » winery. Since then not only she has established herself in the Priorat county but also has been advising world renowned wineries especially on the subject of recovering the forgotten varieties.
In 1999, jointly with her partner René Barbier, she launched the organically grown Venus La Universal wine which effectively has become her trade mark.
Passionate about the native varieties, Sara received her masters degree from the University of Barcelona in 2007.
