The name Petit Pissarres is derived from the word “pizarra,” which is “slate” in Spanish. The unique soil of Priorat is a critical quality factor for the wines. Grapes are sourced from three vineyards in Sant Martí, Mas Alsera, and Les Solanes at 240m to 600m.

This lovely red bursts with red fruits with an undercurrent of forest floor aromas. It is the perfect partner for laid-back meals, since it's terrific on its own and will pair with a wide variety of foods. After one sip, this is the type of wine you keep coming back for!

 

Vinification – After a manual harvest, the wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks. The different varieties in the blend are vinified separately. The wine is then blended and aged for six months in 225L and 500L French oak barrels – part of the barrels are new, some are two years old.
