L’Infernal Aguilera Priorat DOCa

Laurent Combier, Jean-Michel Gerin and Peter Fischer, three renowned French winemakers, started their first vinification in Priorat in 2002.
The first vintages originated from rented vineyards and were vinified in a small cellar in the village of Torroja.
Today, the entire production comes from their own steep slope vineyards and are made in their newly constructed winery.

Aguilera is made from vines on South-East orientation slopes, on brown slate, expressing the class and depth of old Carignan vines (over 100 years).
