Overview

L’Arbossar is a steep, north-facing vineyard near the village of Torroja where Dominik farms 90 year old Carinyena on schist and granite soils. He discovered this site while riding his motorbike around the village and despite the conventional wisdom against northern exposure and Carinyena, he could sense that this was a unique site and one quite different from the south-facing Dits del Terra.
