The story: For centuries, both vineyards and wine have been present in the Priorat region. Although it is acknowledged that Romans cultivated the land for the production of wine, it was during the eleventh century that under the protection of the Prior of the Carthusian monastery of Santa Maria de Escaladei that the Priorat, with its characteristic slate “licorella” soils, became a region synonimous to wine making. Their family have taken an active part in our region’s wine heritage for at least six generations. Above all, they are farmers, growers which have inherited the tradition and expertise passed on along the generations, enriched over centuries by the arrival of new civilisations to this domain close to the mediterranean.
Why you’ll love me: With body and structure, GINÉ GINÉ outstands for its genuineness and aromatic intensity (nose and taste), enhancing the high concentration of fruit (red berries, pomegranate, cherries) of the wine. Jammy and fresh, with an integrated acidity and ageing potential. Undertones of aromatic herbs such as eucalyptus and mint, and spices such as pepper bring out the mineral character of Priorat wines.
