Product Description:

"Herencia Altès is a project a long time in the making. For generations my family has been grape growers, with vineyards dispersed around the village of Batea. Now, I have decided to give these grapes their own personality in the form of these hand-crafted wines. While Terra Alta is not yet a well-known region, tucked away in the southeastern corner of Catalonia it borders Aragón and Valencia - it is one of the largest areas in Catalonia under vine. With plenty of old Garnatxa bush vines, I think it is amongst the best regions in terms of quality and authenticity. My home village is Batea. Built upon Roman and Moorish foundations it preserves a beautiful historical centre and its grand church is testament to its past glories. In terms of viticulture, it is the most important village in Terra Alta accounting for over 50% of its entire grape production. Most of the grapes are sold to cooperatives or large companies outside the region. Herencia Altes is my dream to put Terra Alta on the map and show the true quality of these wonderful old vines." -Winery
