Winemaker Jot Camps loves his country. The rugged, terroir of the Massis del Garraf to the south west of Barcelona. Here the soils are thin (maximum 1m of depth) and the underlying rock is primarily limestone. This ensures that all of his wines have a characteristic acidity and liveliness.
He works small plots of vines following strict Organic (certified) and Biodynamic philosophies and believes in 360o farming, with not just vines planted but fruit tree, olive groves, animals and other wildlife, creating biodiversity.
Both the Xarel.lo and macabeo are destemmed and soft pressed before fermentation. The Xarel.lo under goes 1 day of maceration before pressing. Only indigenous yeasts are ever used and there are zero additions (including sulpher).
