MON PARE

TYPE OF WINE: AGED RED WINE
VARIETIES: SYRAH, CABERNET SAUVIGNON, GRENACHE
VINTAGE: 2016
True to all that they taught me,
This wine is the result of things done without haste.
To let wine find its best expression in the barrel.
Knowing to find the best moment.
To look for authenticity. To find it.

ELABORATION:
After careful selection of the grapes at the winery entrance. Whole grapes are transported to stainless steel tanks where fermentation will take place. With the whole grain and after the grape’s selection, the essence of the varieties and the terrain will be maintained, giving it all the character of the territory. Later, it ages 18 months in 5,000 liters barrels to acquire its characteristic complexity. It is bottled and it’s kept at rest for a minimum of 6 months.

ALCOHOL DEGREE: 14% vol

TASTING NOTE:
Mon Pare is a tasty wine, with an intense plum color and a dense leg that shows us all its structure and aging. Very nice in the nose, aromatically complex with notes that remember the ripe black fruit, spices from aging and a balsamic touch that gives freshness to the aroma. In the mouth it has a smooth entrance, with good presence and balance on the palate, and a long and full end. The complexity and length of the wine in the mouth makes it ideal to accompany processed meats as well as pork or beef stews.

LOLA BEL

TYPE OF WINE: ROSÉ
VARIETIES: 100% GRENACHE "PELUDA"
VINTAGE: 2018
Lola Bel is a tribute to Elías Gil's mother, and by extension, to all mothers.

ALC. STRENGHT: 13% vol

WINEMAKING:
Lola Bel is a rosé wine, made of 100% Hairy Grenache that has been manually selected from the closest parcel to the winery. Our grapes come from a successful grafting of young and old vines of hairy Grenache belonging to a farmer of Horta de Sant Joan. In the winery, grapes are carefully selected with Vistalis, the most advanced machine of selection choosing only the grapes of highest quality. The selected grapes are macerated in cold for 10 hours until a pale pink colour is reached and fermented a controlled temperature of 14-16ºC, in this way fermentation is slow and wine achieves the maximum aromatic expression and a lot of structure.

TASTING NOTE:
Lola Bel is a rosé wine and has a pale pink colour. It is a very aromatic wine that reminds us to fresh strawberries and ripe citrus,
good step by mouth, refreshing and enveloping.

ELS COSTUMS RED

TYPE OF WINE: RED
VARIETIES: 100% HIGH GRENACHE. RECOVERED VARIETY. ONLY IN CATALUNYA
VINTAGE: 2017 D.O. TERRA ALTA
In 1296, friar Berenguer de Cardona, master of the Order of the Temple of Catalonia and Aragon, granted to the village of Orta 'Els Costums’ (the Customs), a set of rules that recognised the uniqueness of this town and its inhabitants.

Tradition, territory and know-how. Identity, authenticity and rediscovery.

At Les Vinyes del Convent we have carried out a series of wine-related archaeological tasks to rediscover and replant varieties and sub-varieties that were traditionally grown at Horta de Sant Joan, which had long since been forgotten due to the passage of time and productivity. High Grenache is a clear example. At La Senyoria estate we currently cultivate two small plots which produce a grenache with straight ownroots and grapes which grow close together and are darker than fine grenache.

WINEMAKING:
After a careful selection of the grape at the entrance to the winery, it is transported whole to the stainless steel tanks, where it ferments. With the carefully selected whole fruit, the grape will maintain all the essence of the variety and of the land, transferring all the character of the territory.

ALC. STRENGTH: 13.5% vol.

TASTING NOTE:
Els Costums red is a plum coloured wine. Aromatically intense and complex, with notes reminiscent of ripe fruit and spices. High grenache provides this wine with a unique character. On the palate it is well rounded, mellow and easy, with a long and flavoursome aftertaste. The marked territorial character makes this wine an ideal choice for typical dishes of the area, such as battered kid or wild boar civet.

About us

Company details

Elías Gil is the fourth generation of a long-standing family of wine producers. 1769 is the year in which we can find the first Gil with ties to the world of vines. Two and a half centuries growing grapes. But the wine production arrived slightly later on, about two generations later.

Ramon Gil, the great-grandfather of Elías, was the heir of the family home, the largest estate in the town, always in Horta de Sant Joan. As was tradition, he was the eldest male of all his siblings and he would inherit the estate.

His siblings gradually married. They left the family home to make their own lives, and Ramon remained single. Looking after his parents and the estate he was to inherit, as it gradually became larger. And when it seemed as though his life would be this way forever, he met Manuela.

Ramon and Manuela fell in love in the most beautiful and tender way, but just like the greatest love stories, she was not welcomed into the family. They did not like her lineage, she was not considered appropriate to continue the family. And so, one night, the parents sat Ramon down and explained their reservations:

“Ramon, you know we love more than anything, and we are aware that you feel the same about us. But this girl will not be part of this family. Take as long as you need to think about it”.

Two minutes were sufficient for Ramon to take his wife by the hand and start a new lineage.

With great effort and a lot of hard work, they managed to buy a bit of land and the house where the following generations would be born. With this they changed the direction of their lives, as well as the traditions and lives of all those who followed them. As of that moment, the heir would no longer be the eldest son, everything would be left to the youngest members of the family.
