Celler Vall Llach was created in the early 90’s by the singer Lluís Llach and the notary Enric Costa in Porrera, one of the nine towns that make up the D.O.Q. Priorat.
The winery works a selection of extraordinary old farms, the so-called “Trossos”, vines between 60 and 90 years old, from Cariñena and Garnacha, which ensure an exclusive must for their collections. This is complemented by a careful purchase of the grapes from properties chosen for their quality among the oldest and most famous of the term of Porrera and Torroja.
On the other hand, and in order to further shape the complexity of its wines, Celler Vall Llach, in the early 1990’s, set up a variety of farms with varieties that complement traditional “Trossos” Garnacha and Cariñena, The foreign Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
