D.O.Q. Priorat (Catalonia)
Camí de Pesseroles is a red wine produced by the winery Mas Martinet in Falset (Tarragona), D.O.Q. Priorat.
The winery Mas Martinet was founded in 1986 by José Luís Pérez, oenologist, researcher, teacher, and one of the main characters in the revival of Priorat.
The farm Mas Martinet, located between Falset and Gratallops, one of the best areas of Priorat, has 7 hectares of vineyards. This farm was chosen back then by José Luís Pérez, according to studies of soils, exposures and microclimates of the areas.
In 2000, Mas Martinet chose to use only organic agriculture, to recover varieties that were almost extinct, to make single-vineyard wines, and to innovate with advice programmes and more efficient and sustainable production processes.
Currently, Mas Martinet is directed by his daughter, Sara Pérez, oenologist of Venus La Universal, among others.
Camí de Pesseroles is a wine made with Red Grenache and Carignan from a vineyard that is over 80 years old, planted on slopes with crushed licorella soils. This vineyard is formed by 3 plots located on the path that goes from Gratallops to Torroja del Priorat.
Harvesting is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard. The grapes ferment with native years in different containers, wooden vats and cement deposits, for approximately one month. For the ageing, they work with used barrels and demijohns, calculating the percentages according to the vintage.
