Notes: Josep while being young has a lot of experience. He worked for many years at Capcanes and eventually began bottling his family's vines in 2000 just after the DO of Montsant was formed. This is a small operation with only Josep, his father and helper doing all the work. They work organically in the vineyards and naturally in the winery.
