Overview

Bodegas Mas Alta, located in the village of La Vilella Alta, is a project headed by three enologists: Michel Tardieu, Philippe Cambie and Bixente Oçafraim. Of all the cuvées produced at Mas Alta, Artigas has the highest percentage of Garnatxa (about 70%), with Cabernet Sauvignon and old-vine Carinyena making up the balance.  From steeps slopes of schist in a warm terroir, Artigas is a silk and rich wine aged in French oak barrels – 1/3 new, 1/3 second fill and 1/3 third fill.
