More about Orto Vins

Orto Vins is the project of 4 partners and friends who wanted to return to their origins of winemaking, when their grandparents and great-grandparents used to vinify the grapes in the presses, and when the vine growers made the wine in their homes. In fact, they were 4 young countrymen from El Masroig with a long cooperative tradition in their families. Two brothers, Jordi and Josep María Beltrán, and two cousins, Joan Asens and Josep María Jové, who have obviously known each other since they were born. The most popular one of them is probably Joan Asens because he was the oenologist of the winery Álvaro Palacios in Priorat and he laid the foundations of the famous red wine, L’Ermita. However, they all follow the steps of their parents, grandparents and great-grandparents in the traditional cultivation of vines. They all provide their lands and their work to the project Orto Vins, which was launched in 2008 when they decided to produce with the grapes of their vines and name their wines. However, as of right now they do not have their own winery; they make their wines in the cooperative of El Molar.

The name ‘orto’ refers to the moment when a star crosses the horizon and becomes visible. Just like it happened to them and their vineyards, which they spent years cultivating for others, or taking the grapes to the cooperative. It is also a prefix in Greek that means ‘rectitude, work well done, beauty’.

 

Work philosophy

What they are certain about at Orto Vins is the raw material, the vineyard. The vineyards they own are located in the municipality of El Masroig, in the region of Priorat. However, they are under Denomination of Origin Monsant. Orto Vins owns 12 farms that cover around 20 hectares. Among them we can highlight Carrerada, Coma, Coma Roquera, Coma Gigolà, l’Era, l’Hort, Obagues, Sorts, Sortetes, Riguera, Tossalet and Tallades. They are located on slight slopes with several orientations, although those facing south prevail. They are located between 52 and 250 metres above sea level, with ages raging from 18 to 90 years old, this is, apart from the pre-phylloxera vines of Picapoll Negro. The lands are mainly calcareous, with prevailing quaternary alluvial silty clay or ‘panales’, clays, gravel and although in less amounts, slates. The plantation density is between 3,800 and 6,000 vines per hectare, with 70% of cultivation in vase-shape and 30% in double Royat. The varieties cultivated are mostly the traditional ones of the area: Carignan and Grenache, accompanied by Ull de Llebre (Tempranillo) and Cabernet Sauvignon, all of them cultivated traditionally with an organic orientation.
