The project was born in 1989,
from being friends with a couple of local chancers, named Alvaro Palacios and Rene Barbier, who persuaded the owner,
Daphne Glorian, that some old Garnacha vines on the local licorella (schist) soils might just make a decent bottle of wine.
The first 10 vintages were made at Barbier’s Clos Mogador until Daphne purchased an old cellar from Palacios. The wines
have gone from strength to strength, mixing the characteristic dense fruit, exotic spice and licorella minerality with a
freshness and elegance that sets the wine apart from many of this grand appellation.
