Vineyard and elaboration
The owners of the winery opted for small plots in vineyards selected for their soils, age, altitude, slope, vigour of the vegetation, type of cluster and grapes' characteristics.
Vines are goblet-trained, dry-farmed and cultivated in an environmentally friendly way, without herbicides and with little intervention in the soil.
Grapes are manually harvested in 18-kg baskets, with partial destemming and light crushing. Each variety ferments separately in small 750-litre vats, with wild yeasts, at a controlled temperature, with a gentle pigeage, and short macerations for between 7 and 10 days. The wine ages 25% in barrels, 25% in vats and the rest in stainless steel tanks. It spends a total of 10 months on its fine lees.
It was founded in 2011 by Pilar Exteve and her husband José Domenech, together with Joan Llobell. It began in the couple's home where they made and stored their wine. Nowadays, they only release a few of their wines on the market, as they own very small plots.
