Land of Grenache grapes
Our small plots of traditional bush vines grow at 450 to 1030 meters high altitude on clay, limestone and blue slate soil worked organic. The north-facing mountain conditions are essential for preserving the acidity of the wine: they provide its unique freshness and elegance.
Our oldest vineyard dates to 1898. We venerate the oldest and less producing vines as the best and unique grapes are grown in them.
Where plants have died or have been replaced with almond trees, the spots left have been replanted with the awareness that we will not see them grow old, but it is or legacy for the future. We want to bring back yesterday’s pride to the valley, to Barrandijos.
