The Priorat

Among Gratallops and Poboleda, hidden between the emblematic Priorat mountains, we find terraces rich in llicorella (a kind of slate stone), where the older vines of Carinyena and Garnatxa, varieties typical of this region, grow as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, two newcomers that have adapted well to the harsh climate and the typical soil.

Utmost respect for the environment and local biodiversity

Character of soils

Undoubtedly the nature of the Llicorella is part of the magic of our wines. A rock consisting of compacted clay sediments for thousands of years providing the distinctive mineral character of the wines of Priorat.

Growing Vines Organically

In accordance with our philosophy of being always respectful to the environment and biodiversity, we cultivate our vineyards organically, without pesticides or herbicides. We use sulfur dust to combat powdery Mildiu, the mildew in Bordeaux broth and Bacillus thurigensis to the worm of the vineyard, so that all the grapes arrive in the best conditions. We do not irrigate our vines so that their roots are as deeply as possible, in order to find water, better withstand periods of drought and more at the same time remove all the soil.
