Wine maker notes
Franck Massard wanted to produce a wine from the Priorat featuring its best expression of terroir, minerality and preserve its freshness which often is missing in this region. For this, he has selected vineyards on steep terraces sheltered from the scorching sun yet sufficiently exposed to reach optimal maturity. The extraction are moderate and the wine nurtured partially in oak to confer stability and complexity yet above all, it is the freshly gathered berries that we wish to express in this particular wine.

Everything began in 2004 when an old friend and I decided to acquire our own vineyard in Spains Priorat region and transform our dream into reality. As sommeliers, we wanted to learn more about production. Our first harvest was just 500 bottles. I quickly found out that developing fine wines requires skill, patience and hard work but I was delighted with our first wine, Huellas. Visiting wine regions across Spain, I discovered extraordinary unknown vineyards and met farmers with an amazing sense of nature. My passion grew and I was ready for a new challenge. I started to create new wines from lesser known regions like Ribeira Sacra, Terra Alta, and Valdeorras, wines with a real sense of place. I found myself seeking out vineyards in marginal climates where the vines ripen slowly and have a natural complexity. Or century-old vineyards, almost abandoned because their yields are so low, where the fruit quality is astonishing. My mission is nurturing what nature provides, highlighting the undiscovered and sharing it with you.
