Oriol’s 7.5 hectares of vines in Vilassar de Dalt, his hometown, are left to grow as naturally as possible. He uses the lunar calendar to plan production, pruning his vines only very minimally and allowing nature to curate the soil between the plants. As such, wild vegetation has sprung up around his vines, allowing them to grow freely in a natural environment. Oriol’s ancient vineyards of native vines are largely based on granite rock, known locally as Sauló, at between 100 and 350 metres elevation. This results in wines often rich in minerality, conjuring aromas that will take you all the way to the Mediterranean.

Terroir: Sauló - granite sand

Age of vines: 17-30 years old 

Vinification: The bunches are hand-harvested and destemmed. Fermentation with indigenous yeast takes place, in contact with the skins for 3 days. The wine is then pressed and 80% aged 11 months on lees in stainless steel and 20% 6 months in oak barrels before blending and bottling.
