New winemaker guide


The chill in the mornings and in the evenings … autumn is not too far. The vine leaves are losing their vibrant green colour. Another week or so and the Grenache will be ready to harvest.

Almost autumn …


Last Sunday we picked the new Mataro grapevines that we planted 3 years ago. The yield was about 50 kg – not a lot but such a great flavorsome grape variety. We destemmed it by hand, to allow the berries to preserve their aroma in the fermenting process.

First Mataro harvest!
