About the Winery
Since 1843, the Puiggros family has been producing wines from their own vines in the Odena region of Catalunya for the family and close friends. Over generations they had come to realize that their vineyards and techniques were something worth sharing with the world. A sincere dedication to the terroir in their zone and the indigenous varieties that grow there, allows them to constantly discover ways to unlock all of the magic that lies within their land.
Starting with conscious and clean farming in the vineyard, they hand-harvest only the best fruit for their production, and ferment each vineyard separately in varying vessels to accentuate what the vines have to show; some in stainless steel, and many in clay amphora of differing sizes. All the while seeing very little sulfur use (if any) until bottling. Puiggros is pushing the quality of northeastern Spain's wines forward, and doing so in a clean and unique way.

Here's an amphora-aged grenache, the idea being that the clay provides a softer textural experience than wood, perhaps with a more mineral aroma as well. This is a big grenache that is soft and warming but also delivers very good fruit concentration and balance. Very impressed in that regard. Expect ripe, confected raspberry/plum jam aromas, with violet and gentle peppery spice. It is full bodied (14.5%). The length is excellent. Tasted January 2021
