Family winery set up in 1978 when Pere Sangenís and Conxita Vaqué started planting vines on Pere’s land near Porrera, within the D.O.Q. PRIORAT. This land had belonged to his mother’s side of the family, named Montlleó, since before 1700, and had mainly been used to grow grapevines. In the year 1978 we started making wine in the former winery of Josep Simó, Conxita’s grandfather, who had made and sold wine since 1886, renaming it Sangenís i Vaqué. Since then at this winery we have maintained a balance between tradition and new winemaking trends, making wines that combine the two. All our vineyards are in the municipality of Porrera, within the D.O.Q.Priorat, planted on terraces and hillsides, on our famous “Llicorella” (schist and slate ground). These poor soils together with a dry climate (450mm of rainfall) provide small but high-quality harvests.
