Cims de Porrera was born in 1996 out of the concern for the abandonment of the centenarian and native vines in Porrera (Carinena and Grenache), which grow in soils of slate at an altitude between 350 and 600 metres in steep descents of 40%-50% and have an average production of 300-500 g of grapes per vine. The tough work conditions, combined with the low rate of return for winegrowers, forced landowners to abandon their vineyards.
The initiative aimed at recuperating these vines and making high quality wines was undertaken together with the members of the local cooperative, who Cims de Porrera buys the grapes from. The result of the hard work of the Pérez family and the winegrowers that have been working this land for generations is Cims de Porrera: a path of recognition and appreciation for what we understand as “Priorat’s pure expression”
