BalmaPrat is a small family winery in the heart of Priorat.
We produce the grapes coming from our own estates located into the edges of Porrera. Our production is around three thousand bottles, a result of a handmade work in the vineyard and the winery, with a lot of care and dedication in the whole process: from growing, grape selection, fermentation, aging, and selling of each bottle. The ultimate goal is to get the maximum expression of the terroir.
La Balma is a steep esate oriented to the west with soils of different llicorellas (slate soils), dressed in vines, almonds, hazelnuts trees in old terraces. Up in the hill the views of Porrera and the hermitage of Sant Antoni are precious. From there we can see the Tossal, the Molló, the Sentius and in the background the Montsant mountains. In the lower part the vineyard gets beside the river Cortiella.
From La Balma vineyard, we make two wines:
A blend with 60% Grenache and Garignan, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 5% Syrah. Aged in French oak barrels, 18 months.
A 100% Carignan old vineyard in coster. It is aged for 24 months. The production is very small.
La Parada is another small estate. The vineyard also coexists with almonds and hazelnut trees, a very cool terroir. Old vineyard.
50% Grenache and 50% Carignan. Aging 12 months. Very small production.
BalmaPrat is one of the smallest wineries in the Priorat. The recognition of the winery is backed up by having loyal customers and vintages of our wines in prestigious restaurants like Celler de Can Roca.
Our passion is to share with you the experience of living the Priorat terroir in our own style. We are open to visit the winery and vineyards.
We arrange visits in advance and adapt easly to your schedules. Come to visit Porrera and taste our artisan wines!
