DQO Priorat

 

Taking advantage of the slate areas in the plots of Carignan in the municipality of Porrera, Joan Sangenís and Marià Bigordà, father and son, break the pattern to produce a wine that has been completely fermented with the grape’s own stem. It also has been aged for 14 months in French oak barrels and left to rest for over a year in a bottle, seeking to obtain a better structure for the final product. An innovative and surprising project!
