Characteristics of La Vinya del Vuit

La Vinya del Vuit is a red wine produced by La Vinya del Vuit in Gratallops (Tarragona), D.O.Q. Priorat.

Since 2001, eight oenologists (‘vuit’ means eight in Catalan) among which are Sara Pérez and René Barbier, got together to share their ideas and create a different and unique wine, year after year, using recovered vineyards and following traditional vinification methods.

La Vinya del Vuit is a wine made with Carignan and a small amount of Grenache, from a 70-year-old vineyard located in Gratallops. This vineyard is planted on crushed licorella soils, it is managed organically, tilled with mules and respecting the vineyard and its surroundings to the fullest.

The harvest is carried out manually and the grapes are transported to the winery in small boxes. Once they arrive, they go through a spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts. After the fermentation, they rest for 20 months in 300-litre second- and third-use oak barrels.


Only 1800 bottles of which is undoubtedly one of the best vintages of La Vinya del Vuit.

Tasting notes La Vinya del Vuit

We present the new 2016 vintage, characterised by the wettest winterin the last five years. Not only did it rain in winter, but there was also wet weather up until summer arrived, especially inMarch and April. In summer everything changed, and it was one of the driest inhistory, with only 28 litres being recorded between July and October.If we compare the temperatures in 2012 and 2016, the 2016 crophad to endure a much colder winter than in 2012, which turned outto be positive, since the frost cleared the fields ofvine parasites. During the spring, lower temperaturesthan in 2012 were also recorded.Due to all these climatic conditions there was a delay insprouting, which began on March 28th, and which led to a delayin flowering of between three and four weeks.Once the summer arrived, the Priorat got all the luck, sincethe rains disappeared, while in the rest of Europethey were incessant. It was something that nobody expected considering thewinter we’d had. Taking into account the delay insprouting, the harvest started around mid-October on some ofthe estates.Obtaining fresh wines with an extraordinary acidity is dueto this long duration of the grape in the strain that has so characterisedthis vintage.
A year with a very good balance. This vintage was characterised by the absence of water stress for the plants. Winter and spring were favourable in terms of rainfall and temperatures were slightly higher than usual. At the time of budding, there was no rain, so the vines developed in a suitable manner. The flowering took place in a clean way and the Grenache vines settled in an excellent way. Summer was characterised by cool and dry days, but also humid, which led to good photosynthesis and growth of the plants. During the end of the summer, before the harvest, there was still some humidity, which preserved the freshness of the soil and, consequently, achieving a gradual ripening of the grapes, perfect to retain the aromas and the good acidity. The negative factor was the rain during the harvest days. In short, the vintage has been somewhat atypical for Priorat, with wines that are less voluminous than in a normal year in the area, but with a good acidity that is reflected in the wines and that will keep them optimal for many years.
The 2013 vintage has been one of the excellent vintages of the last few years in Priorat, this is evident in the fragrance that this wine has achieved. The Carignan from Gratallops has been able to provide a concentrated and rustic profile that everyone loves. They have turned this vintage into one of the best since the creation of this interesting project.
