Compacted Lands, Soils in Love with Grapes

La Presa

Cal Bessó Winery

It is the youngest jewel of Cal Bessó. With vineyards spanning from the 1990s to 2000s, this estate covers 4.5 hectares of pure winemaking passion. But what makes La Presa so special?

Its lands host a varied collection of grape varieties, including Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache Noir, Merlot, Tempranillo, and White Grenache. Additionally, a small plot guards the treasure of old-vine Macabeo.

Jaume Vallès has a clear philosophy: work for the best quality. Although the total production in the Montsant Denomination of Origin surpasses that of Priorat, the key lies in the meticulous care of the estates. The production from the 7 hectares in Montsant, according to Raimon, barely equals that of Priorat. This dedication ensures that each bottle is an ecological masterpiece.

Beyond the exquisiteness of our wines, La Presa takes pride in being an organic grape estate in Tarragona. Organic farming is not just a commitment to the land but also to those who enjoy our wines. We care for each plant with respect, ensuring purity and authenticity in every cluster.

Les Rutes

Del Encastell Winery

If you wonder what makes our organic grape estate in Tarragona unique, allow me to take you on a journey through Les Rutes, a special corner with a history dating back to the 1950s.

Les Rutes, with its 2.6 hectares of vineyard, is a true treasure of the Tarragona region. Planted with grape varieties such as white Grenache, hairy Grenache, red Grenache, and Carignan, this place breathes tradition that has been passed down through generations. The soil supporting our vines in Les Rutes is a geological symphony that adds character to each cluster. It is a Piñolenc limestone soil, with clays and dolomites, where conglomerate nodules formed with chalk and sands, along with flint nodules content, create a unique mineral richness.

The advantage of good drainage in Les Rutes translates into wines with character and balance. The open and not very compacted soil allows the roots to develop fully, absorbing essential nutrients and contributing to the unique expression of each grape variety.

Les Rutes is much more than vineyards. It is a testimony to the rich history of the region, the diversity of the soil, and the commitment to sustainability. Discover the charm of Les Rutes in every sip and let yourself be carried away by the authentic essence of Cal Bessó.
