Joaquim is a one man team planting, tending to, harvesting, and vinifying the wines in his tiny cellar about 6 miles west of the Spanish border in the “hamlet” of Barca d’Alva. This region is particularly inhospitable to farming - only 6 inches of rain per year give this essentially desert climate the ability to grow only grapes, olives, and an assortment of shrubs. The soil is a variable mosaic of broken quartz, granite, shale, and clay with temperatures peaking well over 95 degrees daily in the summer. The night time temperatures drop to the upper 50s and provide a great level of freshness and acidity to the grapes.

The winery tries to combine the best of the old traditions with modern practices. Older traditions include the use of mills for the “cut”, and using a thin layer of carbon dioxide for better extraction. These are combined with modern vinification technology, like extended fermentation in vats using temperature and reassembly control undoubtedly makes the finished wines less aggressive. The wines age in new french oak wood barrels in a warehouse with thick stone walls that are able to control the thermal inertia, allowing good conditions of temperature and moisture before bottling. Wines are aged until they are ready to be enjoyed; they are not released as soon as possible.
