Overview

L’Hostal is a 1.5 ha vineyard of old, head-pruned Carinyena ranging in age from 50-80 years old planted on sandy soils over limestone and clay. This site has been in the family for generations but it wasn’t until 2012 that the brothers d’Anguera decided to use this fruit to make a single-vineyard wine. Produced only when vintage conditions warrant, L’Hostal is made in the same minimal manner as the rest of their wines – whole cluster, indigenous yeast, concrete for fermentation and well-seasoned French oak barrels for aging.
