In the vineyard
Grapes from the vineyards nestled among forests in the municipality of Nalec, the smallest village in the Urgell region. It stands on a small hill at 487 metres above sea level in the southern part of the region.
In the winery
The grapes are dried in the shade, on a bed of straw, for the time required to reach the desired potential alcohol by volume. Selection and pressing of the grapes. Extraction of the concentrated must that ferments in stainless steel tanks.

Do Costers Del Segre
The continental nature of this region, far from the sea, kept it off trading routes for centuries, resulting in wines with characteristic features.
It was the first place in Catalonia where the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay varieties were introduced, together with native varieties, and also where Californian winemaking techniques were adopted.
This is much more than just a bottle of wine
