The Winery

Located in the town of Marcà's former cooperative, a building dedicated to winemaking since the start of the last century, this emerging Montsant winery stands out due to its work with the area's historic varieties:  Garnacha and Cariñena. The wines are subtle, fragrant and complex, and take their names (Brunus and Santbru) from the founder of the Carthusian Monastic Order, Saint Bruno of Cologne.  Carthusian monks have had a presence in the Priorat region since 1194 and instigated the cultivation of vines.

Elaboration - Vinification

Temperature controlled fermentation and short maceration.

Temperature controlled fermentation and short maceration of the grapes during 12 days, to avoid extracting too much of the tannins.

Vineyard - Viticulture

Climatology of those areas is Mediterranean with some continental characteristics, providing to the wine a good acidity. Vines are approximately 25 years old, gobelet trained and low-yielding.
