Overview

With the looming threat of plans to build a cement quarry adjacent to his home, Carlos Esteva mobilized all his resources to preserve the natural setting of his corner of the Garraf Massif. Along with the purchase came some vineyards and a new project was born, Terraprima. Here organically farmed, Xarelo.lo and Riesling are blended together to make a mineral and vibrant wine. Typical of Carlos’ approach to winemaking, after aging for 3 months in tank it is aged an additional year in bottle before release.
