Bodegas Solá Classic

The origin of these wines dating back to the close relationship between the Barceló family and winemaking. One rosette placed above the main entrance of the farmhouse "Mas Hereu" confirms that this relationship goes back to the eighteenth century.

These wines are elaborated with traditional methods, starting with a manual harvest, where each bunch of grapes is carefully separated from the vine, is deposited in baskets and then is selected to make the coupage (blend)according to the criteria of the expert winemaker, who controls, at all times, all factors influencing the quality of the grapes.

Every day, we select the best grapes, working the vineyards with the affection and respect they deserve, as their ancestors did, to keep that noble character that have the Priorato wines, and thereby obtain year after year his harvest.
