When Carles Ortiz first replanted Planetes in 1988, he chose the lower slopes of this site for Cabernet Sauvignon. Unhappy with the results, he and Ester regrafted these vines to a massale selection of Carinyena from their vines in Mas d’En Caçador. In the following years, and much to their surprise, six of the newly grafted vines mutated into Carinyena Blanca. Recognizing the potential for the variety in the warm, dry climate of the Priorat, they continued to graft this selection and some additional massale selections of Carignan Blanc from the south of France. Now this lower section of Planetes totals 0.9 hectares. Starting in 2018, Carinyena Blanca has been authorized to carry the DOQ of Priorat.
