Our philosophy is to produce wines that are the true reflection of the Priorat, characterized by the slate soils, locally called "llicorella", and by its adverse weather, with cold winters, and some summers with very high temperatures, providing wines that are a faithful reflection of the surroundings of the region.
We have opted to maintain the balance of the area, conserving its forests and ancient olive trees that are integrated into the vineyard and the winery.

The Cariñena grape, is originally from Cariñena (Aragón) from where it passed to Sardinia.
For many years it has been the vine most planted and produced in France, arriving in 1988 to occupy an area of ??167,000 hectares. Subsequently the EU began a policy of withdrawal of this vine through the policy of subsidies.
The Cariñena vine is characterized by high capacity to produce high yields, and by being a vine that can develop vertically.
