In the old town of Cervià de les Garrigues, the land of olive oil, small bread loaves and sugar-coated almonds, you will find Els Fogons de la Carme, the family restaurant led by Carme Mora, an amateur-turned-professional chef who served her tables for the first time in 2007.

We work to add value to the high-quality extra virgin olive oil that is produced in the county of Les Garrigues, turning it into the main star of our recipes, harmonising dishes with different profiles and surprising textures for the palate. In the interior courtyard, which is suitable for smokers, is the chill out zone, with music from the 1970s to today. It can be enjoyed before or after the meal, or simply as a place to spend some time.

Wine tourism

Mas Blanch i Jové winery

In 2006 we created a small winery called MAS BLANCH I JOVÉ IN LA POBLA DE CÉRVOLES (Lleida), where we produced wines which are given the designation of origin (DO) COSTERS DEL SEGRE. Our vineyards are located in the county of Les Garrigues, on the border with the county of Priorat, in a mountainous area at more than 700 metres above sea level. The characteristics of the soil, the low levels of rain, the high levels of sunshine and the significant difference in temperature between the day and the night enable us, after working tirelessly and meticulously on the vineyards, to obtain a PRODUCT OF EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY.

Clos Pons winery

Passion and respect for the land, care and delicacy in every phase of the production process and the expert hands of the winemaker Martí Magriña have given Clos Pons a background that consolidates the winery as a benchmark of quality within the DO Costers del Segre and internationally.
