The Vineyard La Vinyeta (meaning “The Vineyard” in Catalan) is about the same size as our El Riu vineyard, so about 2.5 acres. It lies in the town of El Lloar in Priorat. This is a classic Priorat “coster” or an extremely steep vineyard that is not terraced and is full of slate with almost no topsoil. The vineyard is planted approximately (as it is a field blend) to 80% Carignan (Samso) and 20% Grenache (Garnatxa) vines that are over 125 years old and are not irrigated as is the case with all our vineyards in Priorat and Montsant! Yields are a miserly .4 tons per acre! In this rugged land, a throwback to another century, the vines really get to know the meaning of struggling. The 2009 This wine reminds me of the fantastic 2007 we produced from this vineyard. Layer upon layer of varying aromatics mated with luscious wild black fruit. Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate Reviewed by Luis Gutiérrez Issue Date: 28th Oct 2016 Emmanuel Kemiji is a Master Sommelier born in the US but raised in Madrid. He is also owner of Miura Vineyards in California. He started a small project in Priorat back in 2003 with some partners, including some friends from his time at the Ritz Carlton, some chefs, Sylvain Portay, Gerald Hirigoyen, Laurent Manrique and even some celebrities like Antonio Banderas. The project has kept a low profile and I previously had only heard the name but had never actually tasted the wines. They produce wines from Montsant and Priorat, as they own vineyards in both appellations, but none is subject to the official appellation of origin. The winery is located in the outskirts of Falset. Lisa Perroti-Brown met Kemiji in California and she was impressed by the wines from Priorat and got me in contact with him. I'm glad she did...
