DO Tarragona, in the SW of Catalunya, was split into 2 parts when DO Montant was given its own status: Camp de Tarragona (from NW Tarragona and along the coast) and The River Ebro (slightly higher). Like so many Catalan DO's over 70% of its production is white and destined for Cava, although hundreds of years ago it was known for its sweet red and rancio wines. As the vineyards climb from the sea to the Serra de Montalt mountains, the soils and climates change from Mediterrnean to Continental, offering a wide range of wine style. In recent years there has been a concerted effort to modernise its wine production, incorporating new grapes and styles into the traditional vineyards of the region.

Oriol was born in Valls, a small town inland of Tarragona well known for its Calçots (Catalan leeks) and it's Castells (human tower). Growing up he used to help his uncle in the vineyards and cellars he managed for the local co-operative. Oriol ended up working in Telecomms but realised his work meant little to him. So he quit and started helping his uncle, and soon, having met a chemical engineer from Torres produced BIB “El Vi a Punt” together. Here he caught Rene Barbier’s attention and both having roots in Tarragona, started to produce wine together. Escabeces is the name of a small town in Tarragona where 99% of this rare Cartoixa Vermell (just a few vineyards) is planted.

Tasting note: Pronounces; concentrated sweet orange citrus. Kumquat; physallis; orange peel; but bright and firm. The palate has great tension and density; fruity but with a salty and bright and with mouthwatering citric acidity. Touch lemon sherbert. Lovely acidity. Juicy and very drinkable.
Winemaking Detail: Carefully hand picked. A big blend of juice, skin (>40% volume) and de-stemmed grapes. Fermentation lasts 21 days in small plastic vats.
