西班牙侍酒師冠軍Enric Soler於2003年由祖父得到在Penedès的一片小土地後,便拼命研究如何把那裡的Xarel.lo提升成為全世界最好之一,同時他亦致力令他的白酒成為Catalonia最好。在極有天份的釀酒師Esther Nin幫助下,葡萄田開始有機及生物動力耕作,2006年的白酒獲得一致好評,而由2007年開始更常常被搶購一空。

After acquiring a small plot of land from his grandfather in 2003, the Spanish champion sommelier Enric Soler endeavored to transform the local Xarel.lo grape to produce the best wine in the world, he also worked hard to make his white wine the best in Catalonia. Under highly talented winemaker Esther Nin’s assistance, organic and biodynamic agriculture is adopted. The 2006 white wines were a huge blast to the market, and from 2007 onwards, their wines are always the most sought after and easily be sold out.

Wine Advocate Tasting Notes:
A lot less oaky than previous vintages, the single-vineyard 2013 Nun Vinya dels Taus is sourced from a 0.78-hectare plot Xarello planted in 1945 that is worked organically. It fermented with indigenous yeasts in 300-liter oak barrels where it matured for eight months. It's a great expression of the chalky soils of Penedès through the Xarello grape and offers superb acidity and purity, making it very long and supple. This is a wine of structure and volume but well-proportioned and very balanced with the stuffing and harmony to live long in bottle. This is a benchmark Xarello, great example of what this grape can deliver.
