The suffering of our ancient vines through extremes of heat and cold on the tough slate (Llicorella) soils make our grapes truly world-class. Our most cultivated black grape varieties are Garnacha, Garnacha "Peluda" and Cariñena.
Josep Angel Mestre was raised in the town of Falset, known as the "capital" of the D.O.Q. Priorat. The Mestre family has been producing wine in the Priorat region for over 50 years and it was his intense love for his surrounding countryside and an interest in the practice of wine-making that prompted Josep Angel to begin studying both viticulture and enology at a very early age.
