About the Winery
"Celler Vall Llach was founded in the early 90s by Enric Costa and Lluís Llach, in Porrera, one of the nine towns that make up the DOC Priorat in the south of Catalonia.
The winery’s first vintage was in 1998 and it reached the market at the end of 2000.
The demanding standards we impose on all the winery’s activity and processes are: rigour, quality and the importance of the countryside."
