DO Montsant


Thirteenth project (P-13)! Almost 13 years ago, we discovered a hectare of an almost extinct Samsó at Joan Gros’ Vinya Mas. A century old and now ecological, it still allows us to enjoy being able to produce a few bottles of a pure and elegant wine, almost sublime, like an elixir which keeps surprising us every year.. We have done thirteen different but remarkable projects, where Josep Maria Vendrell and Gran Anyada (Marià Bigordà, father and son) have put all of their wisdom to extract the best from a vineyard which is living a second youth.

  • ·102-year-old goblet-pruned vineyard in a calcareous clay soil with excellent depth. The production in 2021 was around 350g of grape per each vine, which allowed us to have 700kg and 552 numbered bottles.

  • The fermentation has lasted for one month and a half, controlled at a temperature of 24-25ºC. When finished, it has gone through malolactic fermentation.

  • We didn’t think it was appropriate to store it in a barrel, in order to preserve the full potential of this variety, just as this special micro elaboration deserves. The outcome has been an explosion of red fruit, ripe and confitted, with good colour intensity and an acidity which guarantees the wine’s longevity to be more than 12 years.


Serve from 16,5-17ºC.
Decant the wine an hour before serving it. Turn the bottle upside down and let the wine splash out of the bottle into the centre of the decanter, then spin it counter-clockwise a couple of times and let it sit.


  • Wines are always stored horizontally in a cool place where temperatures don’t go above 18ºC.
  • The colour, its intensity and hue, can define the features and characteristics of the wine.
  • It is important to open the bottles or decant them before consumption depending on the type of wine.
  • The Montsant DO forms a “ring” and inside it we can find the Priorat QDO.
