A homage to the monks from the valiant Carthusian order which arrived in "Priorat" in the year 1095, where they cultivated grapevines.
A violent mass of people destroyed a lifetime's worth of work in 1835 and looted the order as part of the events that would later end in the "Ecclesiastical Confiscations of Mendizábal". The Torres family began planting vineyards on licorella slopes in 1996. The Central Priorato has a soil known as "licorella" which is unique to the region. Comprised of dark-coloured slate among areas of quartzite, it is poor volcanic soil yet rich in minerals.
