Macabeu, Grenache Noir

Catalunya, Spain

Jordi Llorens is an eighth generation farmer who started making wine in 2008 and commercialised his first natural wines with the 2012 vintage, partly encouraged by his near neighbour in the Conca de Barbera region, Joan Ramon Escoda. Where the wines of Escoda bubble with energy, those of Jordi express a pure calm. Jordi’s family have been farmers of vines and other crops like almonds, olives and livestock since 1779. Jordi himself has been involved with a passion in sustainable farming initiatives for many years. His cellar was from 2008 to 2017 a garage in the back streets opposite the family home, a tiny space, rammed with several tanks and amphora and barrels, through which we squeezed to taste the wines. In 2017 he built a new cellar replete with 10 underground clay jars mostly used for the white wines and which will bring some new aspects to the wines. (Wine Goes East)
