About This Producer


Vall Llach is a fantastically successful venture founded in 1990 by singer Luis Llach and notary Enric Costa in the Priorat DOCa in the village of Porrera. The Vall Llach (1998 was the first vintage) is from nearly 100-year-old vines and is a blockbuster m�lange of Cari�ena, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Embruix is an amazingly rich, harmonious blend of Cari�ena, Cabernet, Grenache, Merlot and Syrah with a lovely tone of red fruit adding to its character. Idus, their third blend, is also focused around the traditional Cari�ena variety with a mix of New World grapes.

In addition to making careful grape purchases from nearby farms, Vall Llach owns several old estates that grow 60 to 90-year-old Cari�ena and Garnacha vines. During the '90s, the winery planted Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah vines to complement their old vines and blending strategy. The estate aims to find a balance between tradition and cutting-edge technology in its production, from grape cultivation to the wine in the glass.
