Overview

The Terraprima wines come from a vineyard site adjacent to Can Rafols that Carlos purchased in 2004 to prevent it from becoming a quarry for the production of cement. It includes 40 hectares of vines many of them well over 50 years old. Terraprima Red is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Garnatxa and Syrah that is fermented in tank and aged in bottle.
