Overview

If you turn off the road up a little dirt track signposted ‘La Sínia de Selma,’ you eventually come out of the woods into a clearing with neat terraces of Chenin Blanc, Perellada Montonega, Roussanne, and Marsanne. This secluded site, at 750 meters, is below the now-abandoned village where Ester’s grandmother used to live. The vines are planted clay-limestone soils. The climate is Mediterranean but with high diurnal temperature variation, and typical annual rainfall is around 900 mm. Due to the unusual blend, the wine falls outside DO regulations of Penedès and is labeled simply Vi Blanc.
