Located in DOC Priorat, the L’Ermita, Finca Dofí, and Gratallops vineyards are planted on steep slopes around the village of Gratallops at 250 to 600 meters above sea level. Most of the estate vineyards employ traditional head pruning. No artificial fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides are used, and harvests are done exclusively by hand.
Only 600 Cases are produced.
Alvaro has been instrumental in introducing the Burgundian ideas of Villages and Cru to Priorat. In 2006, he began to elaborate separately a collection of old vineyards from throughout the township of Gratallops to extend and commercialize this idea.
