Sangenís i Vaqué

The vineyards are located in the district of Porrera within the Priorat Qualified Designation of Origin, on terraced hillsides, formed by the famous “llicorella” (slaty schist land). Very poor land combined with a dry climate ( 400 mm) provides minimal production and therefore maximum quality.

In 1978 Pere SANGENÍS and Conxita VAQUÉ started to plant vines in the lands of Pere, in Porrera, D.O.PRIORAT. They know that this lands has been in the maternal side of his family –MONLLEÓ- since before 1700, and on which vines were primarily cultivated. At the beginning of the century bottling was attempted in some houses of the PRIORAT, however this project collapset as they were times of social and economic conflict.
