Our bodega has 32 hectares of the finest vineyards in Priorat with the oldest vines being over 100 years of age. We were recently rated the #1 winery in a blind tasting among our peers, top critics, sommeliers and international judges.
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.
We also have small plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Tempranillo and Syrah. White grapes represent a small proportion of production using Garnacha Blanca and Macabeo.
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.
Educated in Agricultural and Technical Engineering and Enology, Josep Angel has a deep understanding of the two most important factors of winemaking: the viticulture and the chemistry. While his degree hails from the prestigious University Roveria and Virgili, the foremost school of Enology in Catalunya, Josep Angel has also studied winemaking in France and attended numerous international technical conferences on the newest techniques in the profession.
