The Producer: Costador

Costador, run by Joan Franquet, works only using organic and biodynamic practices on a singular mountain where there are very old vineyards – the majority of them between 60 to 110 year – spanning different soils (slate, clay, and limestone) and at altitudes between 400 to 800 meters.

With the high contrast of temperatures, the grapes can mature for long periods allowing the preservation of freshness and acidity. The temperatures are always controlled throughout the entire process, from the moment the grapes are picked to fermentation and aging. Joan Franquet strives to preserve the authentic flavor and taste of the varietals and so only uses wild and indigenous yeasts for fermentation.

The major part of fermentation is done in amphora or stainless steel tanks, along with used French and acacia oak barrels. Aging is completed in amphorae and used oak as well. Joan Franquet allows a genuine wine to develop from its place of origin. The estate works with indigenous Catalan varieties of grape: red grapes such as Grenache, Carignan, Sumoll Negre, and Trepat, white grapes such as Macabeu, Xarel-lo, Sumoll Blanc, Parellada, and Grenache Blanc.

Shipping & Returns

Shipping Policy


Stress-Free Shipping

At Primal Wine, we like to be transparent about everything we do. When it comes to buying products online, shipping is the most important aspect, and that’s why we take great care in shipping and handling your order using only 100% recycled packaging material.

Important Compliance Requirements

FedEx and other carriers we might occasionally use can only deliver wine to customers who are 21 years or older. Someone must be at the address to receive the package, carriers don't just drop a package and leave. They must ensure the person receiving the wine is 21 or older.

Re-shipping a Package

If a package gets returned to us after three failed delivery attempts, we can only re-ship the wine upon payment of a re-shipping fee to be determined based on shipping address and number of bottles. Shipping wine is extremely expensive, we are sorry about this, but we have no other choice. Please make sure there's always someone at the address you enter as your shipping address.

If you'd like to receive a refund for a package that was returned to us after FedEx made three delivery attempts, we can do that but we must keep a $20 refund fee; FedEx charges us a lot of money for returns, unfortunately, I can't stress this enough.

Re-routing a Package

If you'd like to re-route a package after it's been shipped, we can do so upon payment of a $25 re-routing fee. We cannot re-route a package across state borders. For any change of address, please contact us as soon as possible, ideally within 1-2 days from placing the order or we cannot guarantee we'll be able to reroute or change your order's shipping address.

Canceling an Order

If you'd like to cancel an order after it's been shipped, we can do so upon payment of a small cancelling fee – the amount depends on how big the order is. Carriers charge us a lot of money to recall a package en-route.

WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR HEAT-RELATED ISSUES. WE OFFER ICE-PACKS AS ONE OF OUR SHIPPING OPTIONS. PLEASE SELECT THAT OPTION SHOULD YOU THINK THAT THERE COULD BE HEAT-RELATED ISSUES.
