Production: Sourced from a 4 ha. single plot called " Finca La Caseta" located in the twon of Bonastre within the distric of Baix Penedès and the province of Tarragona. At an altitude of 170 mt above the sea level and under a strong maritime influence, due to its proximity to the coast, just 6 km away, together with the clayish soil, poor in organic matter, and the low yield producing vines, gives the grapes the excellent characteristics from this vineyard, which results into a 100% Terroir expression wines.
The cultivation of the vineyards is done under sustainable viticulture. The harvest is done manually followed by hand sorting of the grapes in the vineyard. The fermentation took place at controlled temperature of 12.5ºC during 25 days in 200 ltr. Clay Amphora vases, followed by 5 months resting on its lees in stainless steel tanks.

Based in Bonastre a small village in the Baix Penedès in the province of Tarragona where the family owned winery has been growing vines for more than 100 years intended for the bulk wine market until a few year when Eduard took charge of the winery and renovated it in order to produce good quality wines.

He uses small amounts of sulfur only at key stages.
