Viticulture and Vinification:

From the beginning, Jordi wants to make organic wines with the aim of obtaining high quality products, respecting the environment. Jordi Llorens works with high altitude soils (around 600 m on average) and cultivating the vine without any chemistry.

In the cellar, the same logic: work, a lot of thought and hygiene; but, above all, without chemicals, not even sulfur; resulting in absolutely splendid wines of depth and straightness.

Blankaforti is made with Garnacha, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Parellada. Planted on dark brown carbonated shales and calcareous sandstones, and red marls and plasters soil, between 400 and 600 meters of altitude. It came without D.O. of organic and biodynamic agriculture.
