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.

Salaksio is made with 90% Grenache, 10% Syrah. Planted on calcarenite and gypsum soils of the Upper Eocene, between 400 and 600 meters of altitude. It came without D.O. organic and biodynamic agriculture.
