Wines from Terra Alta boast a unique character. This is down to numerous factors, including the region's unique wine culture, the location of the vineyards in the inland Mediterranean, and the abundance of native varieties including the Garnacha Blanca, whose white wines perhaps best express the unique character of the terroir. It is for this reason that these wines hold their own distinctive classification of “Terra Alta Garnacha Blanca”.
In 1994 a major reform was introduced in the cellar Barbara Fores, with the acquisition of new machinery and adapting the building to modern requirements, we pursued a philosophy of respect for tradition and the incorporation of new technology in the extent that both the one and the other contributing something to the wine. In the processing area, the small size of the tubs can deal separately with each of the varieties according to the vineyard of origin. In the breeding room, in barrels of French Allier oak, the wines are bred to be eaten later. Leveraging the structure of the old mills for the winery's cellar has been conditioned as an area for rest and barrel aging. Finally, at the age and sobriety of the stone has set up a tasting room and to the public.
