Vinyes Domenech was founded in 2002 by the Domènech family, with the goal of preserving and improving the natural heritage of the estate by creating a wine-making project that embodies the landscape and biodiversity of the environment, maintaining its unique ecosystem. In 2015, as a result of dedicated work, Teixar was recognized as “Vi de Finca” (Gran Cru, Single Vineyard Wine) by Incavi and D.O. Montsant. This recognition is granted to single-estate wines of international prestige that comply with demanding protocols of quality and traceability.
Grapes all come from a single vineyard, Teixar. Organic and Biodynamic viticulture on 80 year old vines, with a limited production of 400 grams per plant. Hand harvested on a number of occasions to ensure optimal ripeness, days or even weeks apart. Low pressure hydraulic pressing for minimal extraction. Fermentation occurs naturally on wild yeast at around 25 to 30 degrees with macerattion on their skins lasting a maximum of a week. Then aged 12-14 months in foudre of 1,500-3,000L with low sulphur at bottling.
