It all started with the ambition of a restless man, Juan de Porcioles, who had always dreamed of living in the country, cultivating the land and raising his own livestock … So it was that, in 1992, the Porcioles-Buixó family bought the property. Since then, the estate has been developed with hard work and enthusiasm, and endowed with its own character and singularity.
Today, it is known as Finca de Flix.At the same time, Juan de Porcioles, a great lover of wine, gradually developed the idea of cultivating his own vineyard to produce wines with a distinct personality and of the highest quality.
So, in 1998, and with the help of friends and family, he planted the first vineyard, Vinya Vella, by hand, prompting the recovery of winegrowing in the region. This was quite a project, which, today, thanks to his wife and children, is becoming a reality.
According to Juan Porcioles “a great wine starts in the vineyard and we need to take good care of it”. A wide range of varieties are grown in the country state: Tempranillo, Garnacha Tinta, Syrah, Merlot, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Viognier; we also experiment with new varieties and clones that will produce future wines. The vineyards are grown in a very heterogeneous soil.
These lands are not very deep and they are poor in organic matter, rich in loam and mud, at an altitude of 310 metres, with a Mediterranean weather of continental influence.
