Her family has been farming grapes in this area since the 16th century, she has a little of ‘street cred’ in the area! After inheriting this plot of land, she began researching her soil diversity. Once she was equipped with a detailed soil map of her 13.2 hectares illustrating Licorella and its 10 other different soils types, Cesca became determined to make wines that show the incredible diversity of her vineyard. She has been practicing organic since 1999 and became certified in 2011, striving to make a wine as natural as possible and dedicated to the production of terroir driven wines.
This Priorat offers amazing value for this top wine region, where wine prices have escalated like no other region in the past 10 years.
