The winery is owned by Gerard Batllevell Simó, descendent from a family of local winegrowers. In 1999, he restored the basement of their historic house in Porrera into a modern winery and together with its father support and the advice from family and friends, made its first vintage in 1999. Their vineyards, mainly dominated by slate soils, known locally as llicorella, are split into 2 zones, the high altitude, cool vineyards around the village of Porrera and La Garrantxa, Les Eres, situated on a steep terraced costers overlooking the village of Porrera. 3 Ha. planted 93 years ago with vines of Carignan and Grenache.

Tasting Notes: An extraordinary black-coloured, concentrated, rich, dense, full-bodied red. The flavours included plums, black berries, spices and licorice with a perfect balance of acidity and dryness. Should mature beautifully.
Notes: It is recommended to decant it before serving. It can be drank now or store it and enjoy as it ages in bottle - through 2027.
