It's a cooperative for social integration, which incorporates people with difficulties who play an active role in the whole process. "We firmly believe that work is a dynamic and emotional experience". Along with production activities and labour market integration, the cooperative carries out social activities, mainly for people with mental disabilities.

Profile of wines
Winery located in the village of Vallbona de les Monges famous for its white wines, sparkling wines and red wines, while its dessert wines deserve a separate chapter.
All of them have a distinctive Mediterranean character, with limited editions made with grapes grown on terraces facing different directions, a factor that gives each wine its own particular character. Organic farming criteria also define the project, with some plots producing about two hundred thousand kilos per year.
