DO Conca de Barbera, based around the town of Montblanc, is a Catalan region north of Tarragona with an ancient winemaking tradition and is home to the oldest wine co-operative in Spain (dating back to the 12th Century). Older vines are planted as low bushes while the more recently planted ones are on trellises to increase yield. The soils are generally calcareous and poor in organic matter with some black slate (Licorella) as you near Montsant. They grow large amounts of Macabeo and Parellada intended for Cava but red plantings and production is on the up. With most vineyards between 350 and 600m, here their hallmark native grape variety Trepat thrives and produces fresh, light, but beautifully concentrated aromatic wines.

Vins de Pedra is the personal project of Marta Pedra, who just happens to be the wife of Josep Serra from the winery La Vinyeta. Though winemaking runs in her blood - her great-grandfather was a much revered oenologist from Tarragona - it lay dormant for several generations until it finally awoke in her. So, having always grown up around vines Marta took it upon herself to go and study oenology working in several small wineries in the region before realising her own dream. Her tiny winery lies between maritime and continental climates, with calcareous soils and in and amongst many micro-climates. Her wines are revered, almost as much for her Godfather's label design which changes every year, as for what's inside.
