David makes his wines together with the best producers, selecting the best vineyards and local grapes. He currently produces two wines, one in Empordá and the other in Valdeorras, two very special areas for him.

Tasting notes Roca del Crit

Roca del Crit 2016 is an elegant, fluid and complex red wine. This vintage reveals an excellent balance between maturity and freshness. On the nose, the aromas of ripe black fruit stand out, with the spicy and slightly toasted notes of the aging. On the palate it is silky, lively and very lingering.

Designation of Origin D.O. Empordà

The landscape of the region of Empordà, located in the northeast of Catalonia, is full of contrasts, due to the natural limits of the Pyrenees in the north and the Mediterranean Sea and magnificent Costa Brava in the east. Thanks to these, the Empordà is a unique place, a special territory between the sea and the mountains, marked by the presence of the north wind known as Tramontana.
