The Winery

The winery takes the name of the historic farmhouse (18th century) that stands among its vineyards in Santa María de Martorelles (Vallès Oriental). The common denominator of the wines is the native variety of the area (Pansa blanca) and the uniqueness of the vineyards, all of them historical and, in some cases, planted before the phylloxera. Another common denominator is the care of the vine so that the wine is the most honest expression of the terroir where it was born.
