Overview

Nuria’s most widely planted red variety is the indigenous Garnatxa Negra which grows well in the sandy and clay-limestone soils of the region. By mixing old and young vine fruit, and fermenting in concrete, Nuria is able to create an affordable, lively, and elegant version of Garnatxa showcasing the delicate Pinot-side of the variety —100,000 bottles produced annually.
