Overview

Arbossar is a steep, north-facing vineyard near Torroja where Dominik farms 90-year-old Carinyena on schist and granite soils. He discovered this site while riding his motorbike around the village. Despite the conventional wisdom against northern exposure and Carinyena when power and extraction were preferred in the Priorat, he could sense that this was a unique site and the perfect complement to the nearby and south-facing Dits del Terra.
