El Veinat Garnatxa
Selected by Vinedos Singulares as a fine example of a 100% Garnatxa (Garnacha) from Monsant.
El Veinat sourced from vineyards planted in the 1990s in Monsant – a DO that nearly fully surrounds Priorat yet offering a softer, more approachable style of wine.
An aromatic bouquet of red fruit, vanilla and herbs. A subtle, balanced wine with silky tannins and a fresh, light feeling in the mouth.
About the Producer
After years of visiting countless wine-producing regions and developing a great deal of experience in producing and marketing wines, the Barrero brothers – Luis and Carlos – created the Viñedos Singulares (Singular Wines) project. The results of their travels are now stocked in some of the best restaurants in Barcelona.
Their story started in June 1993 with a journey when two brothers confess to their father their dream of travelling to Santiago in the summer holidays and they ask him to lend them his beloved old red Seat 128 so that they can drive there.
They are young, adventurous and no more than twenty-five years old. Their father, an elderly, prudent man who is a wine-lover, lends them his car for two weeks in August on one condition: they must return with the best red wine in the Iberian Peninsula.
The brothers, who have been brought up to follow the family wine-making tradition, set off on the journey without believing in miracles, but with the conviction that the most prized treasures are those that have remained undiscovered.
The resulting company motto has become “where to find what you are not looking for”.
