In the old days, the stables and the food supplies of the Earls of Urgell (798-1413) were located in these lands of Flix, Ribera del Sió. Now we have designed a viticulture project addressed to obtain high quality wines with all the nuances and flavors that the rich soil and microclimate of the riverside offer us.

The estate -which belongs to Porcioles-Buixó family- is located in the Noguera region, in the council of Balaguer, and it belongs to Costers del Segre appellation of origin.

It is a country farm that has an extension of 700 hectares from which 82 are devoted to wine growing in order to elaborate the exclusive wines of our cellar. It is a property of impressive beauty, a place of quietness and tranquillity that also includes the farming of olive trees and cereals, sheep and cattle raising and a game preserve. They are different elements of a comprehensive project designed to achieve a perfect ecological balance.

A wide range of varieties are grown in the country state: Tempranillo, Grenache, Syrah, Merlot, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Muscat Petit Grain, Macabeu, Viognier…; we also experiment with new varieties and clones that will produce future wines.

We work, experiment and study vine behaviour in order to obtain high quality grapes. According to our philosophy “a great wine starts in the vineyard and we need to take good care of it”.

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. All of the Costers del Sió wines have the Costers del Segre Appellation of Origin. Our wines are modern wines. They are fresh, aromatic and full bodied. They are complex and well balanced. All the members of the project make a great effort and show much enthusiasm in their daily tasks to produce high quality wines that express their own personality yet reflect the essence of our land.
