"Marc & Adria Perez are two cousins of the same age who grew up on farms and wineries. They both worked and traveled abroad in very diverse areas, but perhaps more than any other country, France with Bordeaux and the Rhone has marked them. Hence, the name of the winery and the wines: "Les Cousins" (in Catalan, it's written almost the same way). Currently, they are consultants, co-owners and helpers in some shared projects with friends and family: El Celler de la Muntanya (Alicante), Amics del Governance (Montsant), CIMS de Porrera (Priorat) and the famous family vineyard Mas Martinet (Priorat). Six years ago, they started a more personal project that symbolized who they are. "Les Cousins Marc & Adria" was born in the village of Porrera (Priorat). The area were they first started their experience in wine, where they grew up together and where they live today. They always wanted to begin something new from scratch, focusing on the old vines from the village of Porrera and using different types of vinification. 2007 saw the birth of La Sagesse or Wisdom, merely 10,000 bottles made of very old Carignan and Grenache. The following year, in 2008, they were able to source more grapes and made a more value oriented and attractive wine: "L'Inconscient" or "The Innocence". The wines were first released in 2010."
