D.O.: Terra Alta
In 2005 some of the facilities of an old distillery in Vilalba dels Arcs popularly known as "La Bollidora" were recovered.
What began as a weekend hobby evolved into one of the most renowned wineries of the D.O. Terra Alta, winning numerous accolades around the world.
The winery is located in the revamped facilities of the old distillery in Vilalba dels Arcs. This is why it is called La Bollidera (The Distillery). In 2005, Joan Carlos Sánchez Brianzó began producing exclusive wines in this old plant.
D.O. Terra Alta was recognized in 1972 as one of seven historic D.O.s in Catalunya. It is located in the South, between the river Ebro and the border with Aragón. What distinguishes the D.O. Terra Alta from other areas is its grape varieties, such as Garnacha Blanca, Garnache negra and Garnacha peluda.
