Produced in the wonderful monastic region of Conca de Barberà, in southern Catalonia, Molí dels Capellans Trepat comes from low-yielding vineyards located at altitudes between 450 and 550 metres above sea level, located in the towns of Pira and Solivella.
The grapes were harvested during hours of low light to prevent pre-fermentation. They underwent a double selection process, one at the vineyards and another at the winery before being destemmed.
Once in the cellar, the grapes were gently pressed and cold-macerated. The fermentation process was then carried out at a low temperature. Afterwards, this red wine from Conca de Barberà was aged for 6 months in French oak barrels. This wine was then bottled and aged for an additional 6 months before it left the winery.
