Overview

Micalet was the first vineyard Javi Revert acquired in 2014 and based on some inside knowledge as to the potential for this site – his grandfather, Vicent Albero planted it in 1948! This sandy and chalky site is located at the western edge of the DOP of Valencia and is planted with the indigenous and heat-tolerant Tortosí, Trepadell, Malvasía, Merseguera and Verdil.
