The Domènech family comes from Falset and since 2002 they have been the owners of one of the oldest vineyards in Capçanes, located in the south of Priorat County within the D.O. Montsant wine appellation. At an altitude of 450-500m, nestled between the Llaberia and Montalt mountains, this protected mountainous conservation area, surrounded by lush forest and underground springs, benefits from a unique microclimate, very diverse soils and very old vine Grenache (Garnatxa) vineyards… in other words, a “terroir” where all elements converge in this one place to make very special, unique wines.
