In 2010 I decided to buy my father’s grapes and make quality wine that carried my family’s name. The Herència Altés brand was born and by 2013 it had become successful enough for us to invest in our first vineyard, La Serra, and our own little winery, in my home village of Batea. Working in combination with an experienced winemaker from France, Claude Gros, we have been able to experiment with different materials and techniques to find out what worked best with our amazing garnacha grapes. An initial range of four wines had expanded to nine, including the two single vineyard wines La Serra Blanc and Negre. In 2014 and 2015 we purchased the Grau and Chalamera vineyards, bringing out total holding to 60 hectares, many of which have old vines and all of which are farmed according to organic practices.
In 2016 work began on our new winery positioned in the Grau vineyard. Surrounded by old vines and overlooking the dramatic Els Ports massif, this modern, state-of- the-art facility is the final effort on our journey to become a premium producer of authentic wines from Terra Alta.
