This wine is the fruit of labour and passion of René Barbier's son and his wife Sara Perez. This project began in 2002 when 4 hectares of old vines of Carignan and Grenache, abandoned for over 30 years, were discovered in the hills of Priorat. From the beginning, they have done their work by applying agro-ecological settings (organic) seeking to meet the particularity of these vines in this region.
