Characteristics of Ferrer Bobet Vinyes Velles
Ferrer Bobet Vinyes Velles is a red wine made by Bodega Ferrer Bobet from D.O. Priorat. Ferrer Bobet Vinyes Velles is a coupage of Cariñena and Grenache Tinta. The grapes are grown on century-old vines on steep slopes, called "costers" in Priorat. The soil is typical for this denomination, very sought after. Slate soil, called "licorella" that contributes to the minerality and special character of the wine. The vines are located in one of the highest and freshest areas in the denomination which guarantees the perfect ripening of the grapes. Additionally, there is a contrast in temperatures between the day and night which helps preserve aromas and acidity. Ferrer Bobet practices a strict organic viticulture. They do not use any type of insecticide or fungicide or herbicide, showing an enormous respect for the land. The harvest is done by hand, and the grapes are transported to the winery in small 10kg crates. The grapes pass through a selection table twice where there is a strict selection from grape to grape.
The fermentation is done in 15 and 30 hl wooden and stainless steel deposits. Ferrer Bobet Vinyes Velles undergoes an aging for 15 months in lightly medium toasted and fine grain French oak barrels. The wine is not filtered or clarified before it is bottled. Before it is released onto the market, it rests for a minimum of 11 months in the bottle.

Priorat is craftsmanship and tradition, old and robust vines that are grown and born deep inside the province of Tarragona. They are grown on slopes that are sleety with low fertility and difficult to grow in. In Priorat they produce great red wines of an excellent quality, a maroon colour, robust, dense and rich flavour, intense aromas and sometimes there are reflections present of minerals from the soils.
Ferrer Bobet has in the space of a few years managed to become one of the most established wineries in the DOQ Priorat, a feat that has taken other winemakers decades to achieve. Since they released their first wines back in 2008, the prestige of this winery has done nothing but grow. Based on their own merits, they have gained the trust and respect of consumers, with their wines consistently ranking within the top positions in national and international wine guides. The winery’s two founders, Sergi Ferrer-Salat and Raül Bobet, have lead this project with the philosophy of producing different and unique wines with very clear ideas. In record time, they have managed to catapult this idea into what is today now a long term project.
