DOQ Priorat

 

It was 1997 was when Joan Sangenís decided to bottle, for the first time, a small part of his own vintage and the year when he established contacts with Marià Bigordà, father and son, in order to formalise a joint project. A project that has been extended and repeated over the years, reaching the acceptance and loyalty of Gran Anyada customers, which have made the products of “Celler Cal Pla” one of the standards of our company.
