Franck Massard, esteemed sommelier and co-producer of the wines strives to produce top end Priorats that combine complexity and elegance with minimum handling.
Everything began in 2004 when Franck and an old friend decided to acquire a vineyard in Spain's Priorat region and transform their dream into reality. As sommeliers, they wanted to learn more about production. Their first harvest was just 500 bottles and they quickly found out that developing fine wines requires skill, patience and hard work but they were delighted with their first wine, Huellas.
Visiting wine regions across Spain, they discovered extraordinary unknown vineyards and met farmers with an amazing sense of nature. Franck's passion grew and he started to create new wines from lesser known regions like Ribeira Sacra, Terra Alta, and Valdeorras, wines with a real sense of place.
Franck's mission is nurturing what nature provides, highlighting the undiscovered and sharing it with you.

Light, elegant complex and dry with vibrant freshness in the glass and a powerful fruity, herby nose. In the mouth there is subtle minerality with a refreshing finish.
