WINERY PROFILE: PERINET
Perinet is a spectacular estate vineyard in the Priorat DOQ, located approximately at 90 min. drive from Barcelona. Perinet Winery is an entirely unique asset in the Priorat, in part due to the original developer’s approach which made the efforts in carrying out their vision to invest in a premium winery and a tourist destination of excellence.
Perinet estate is a propriety surrounded by local varietals like Carignan and Grenache as long as international French varietals including Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot. The estate features a showcase winery, the jewel of the Priorat. Perinet focuses on boutique estate wines.
The developers of Perinet set about building terraces and finished planting vines by 2002. The vineyards are built on technologically advanced terraces, with a high density plantation. Nowadays Perinet has become a modern winery located in a very traditional region. Different varieties, different wines and techniques make Perinet a place where the past meets the future.
THE VINEYARDS OF PERINET
The Perinet estate vineyards encompass three completely unique and distinct micro-climates within the ancient Priorat region. Our site diversity allows our winemaking team to add melody, harmony and complexity within our blends. The three vineyard personalities translate to warm and fruit-forward in Mas Vell, fresh, vibrant and long in Mas del Xes, and spice-laden grapes cooled by Mediterranean breezes in Pendents. These individual climates define our home in the Priorat.
Our traditional plantings of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah are augmented with international varietals in Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Each vineyard block takes on its own character burrowing deep into llicorella, the rare slate and quartz-laden soils that define the Priorat. In conditions almost impossible for other plants to grow, our vines thrive in their search for water and nutrients, a true “struggle of the vines” to produce world-class wines.
Perinet invites you on a journey of discovery that appeals to all the senses. A journey in which you will experience the pleasure of our handcrafted wines and discover the mysteries of the great wines of Priorat, the fruit of an ancient tradition and heroic viticulture.
You will get to know about the Llicorella, the Priorat terroir, learn about history, customs and traditions. You will feel the magic of the region and, most of all; you will have a great time. Perinet brings you the chance to participate in a journey of discovery, cultural enrichment and enjoyment, always inspired by the excellence of our wines.
