Winemaker in Focus - Clos 93

Posted by Alexander Percy on

Clos 93 was the 93rd winery (Clos) to register with the Consejo Regulador de Priorat, created 10 years ago by brothers Rubén & Josep Sabaté, alongside their uncle Pepo, in whose house & garage they carefully craft the wines.

The grapes come from vines in the town of El Lloar, where they are just one of two wineries. With some 108 wineries now registered in Priorat, Clos 93 may not be the newest, but it is officially recognised as the smallest: producing just 12,500 bottles.

The 18-80 year old vines that are used across the  are organic with minimal intervention. All grapes are hand-harvested and are pressed very gently, with fermentation happening spontaneously with native yeasts only. The wines are then left to age in large 300L French oak barrels until they are ready to be bottled, which can be up to two years.
