Priorat D.O.C.a. is nowadays one of the most prestigious wine region all over the world. Unique. Sublime. The vines grow in poor, rocky soils, mainly silica slate, known by locals as “llicorella”, that gives Priorat its unique character. The llicorella confers the exclusive personality to the Priorat wines.

Just like their ancestors, they follow a philosophy of traditional winemaking practices with respect for the nature and environment. Their goal, besides growing high-quality grapes, is to maintain soil health and to be mindful of the environment
