Alfredo Arribas, El Mas de L’A, Racorell, Garnacha Tinta, Garnacha Peluda, Garnacha Gris, 2020, Priorat, Catalonia, Spain

Producer Profile

Alfredo Arribas a multidisciplinary architect, has developed most of his renowned international career in multiple world locations. Recently, more of his works have taken place in his birth town, Barcelona.

In 2001, Alfredo started his adventure in the wine world, after acquiring the estate Clos del Portal, in Priorat, where he centres his activity. In parallel, he develops a recovery task of a bunch of old vines – Trossos – in the neighbour Montsant appellation.

“El Mas de l’A” is undoubtedly clearly focused on the search for a different Priorat. A project based on the different red and white Grenache grapes growing in the enclave of La Morera de Montsant, a valley located between the small towns of Cornudella and Poboleda, this region stands out for its ideal climatic conditions, a perfect balance between north and south, an altitude of 500 metres above sea level, and a rich range of soils.


Opting for sustainable agriculture and viticulture, co-planting as a rule, and stimulating the virtues of the youngest vines. The result is a range of very fine wines with a lower alcohol content and silky tannins. Wines with great potential and small productions.

Happy young vines are selected from soils composed of red clays and slates (a kind of liquorella from the North), Racorell explores the refinement capacity of the co-planted Grenaches compendium: red, hairy and gray. The key is at the right time of the harvest.


No more 50% of the grapes are destemmed, the maceration is quite long while ferments – with its own yeasts – in cement vats. Seeking to preserve the purity of the fruit, the wine ages in large casks, along a minimum of twelve months. Slippery subtlety among balsamic and mineral nuances.

Tasting Note

Amazing complexity on the nose – Cherry, wild raspberry and soft juicy tannins, one might feel like they’re in Burgundy. Elegant, poised with beautiful balanced acidity and soft grippy tannin. Utterly delicious.

Goes well with

Barbequed lamb cutlets with mint & basil yogurt sauce.


6-10 years with careful cellaring.
