L’Infernal El Casot 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.

El Casot is made from vines on steep slopes with southern orientation, expressing the freshness of brown slate.
