Wine maker notes
Arrels (ah’rels) n. Derived from the Catalan wordmeaning roots of a vine, to settle, to put down roots. For Gerald Hirigoyen, Emmanuel Kemiji, Laurent Manrique and Sylvain Portay it is a return to the place we came from and the search for our roots. Arrels is located about 85 miles southwest of Barcelona in the Montsant wine region which surrounds the Priorat wine appellation. In the last decade these two areas have become the most talked about wine regions not just in Spain, but possibly in all of Europe. The difference between Montsant and Priorat is that Priorat is much more mountainous and the soils are almost entirely made up of slate. In Montsant that same slate mixes with clay to create softer, more approachable wines in their youth, while perhaps lacking the intensity and concentration of Priorat. It is often times mentioned that Montsant is ”a poor man’s Priorat”.
