After 7 years in the world of wine and with a nonconformist spirit and a rebellious point, in 1999 I planted my first vineyard to found what would later be the Winery, all of this to be able to experience and learn more about this world than everything and what late in terms of age, I was captivated.
Throughout all these years I have been able to learn a lot of things, but I still want to continue learning and enjoying this world of wine, cheers.
Since I was little, I have always experienced firsthand the fact of having vineyards and a winery at home, and going to help my father at the harvest, do the maturation controls and other winery works, and my curiosity began to arouse. I have always found it curious to go from a gram of sweet grape to a glass of wine with different aromas and tastes, so I also decided to start experimenting with new things that I had never seen in the winery.
I was born in Barcelona, but when I was very young I moved to La Vilella Baixa, a town located in the heart of Priorat and where I felt surrounded by a friendly environment, full of nature. I studied Professional Training in Oenology and Viticulture in Falset and later the Graduate in Oenology at the URV. I have worked in different Catalan regions and different Denominations of Origin: Priorat, Terra Alta, Baix and Alt Camp, Baix and Alt Penedès and Conca de Barberà, where I have made wines for cava base, whites, rosés, young and aged reds, sparkling , sweet and stale. The long friendship that unites me with Jordi Miró, due to the employment relationship and the most important the personal one, has made me get involved in the winery project as if it were my own, from the first moment. Today, due to a sudden change in my life, I have been able to realize one of my dreams as a young man, combining oenology with the writing of stories, short stories and novels. On my blog (costersdelletres.blogspot.com) you can find my writings. And that is: What could be better than combining a reading with a glass of the thoughtful and elaborate wines of Jordi Miró? Just a story in which both worlds are combined.
Although Jordi Miró and I are from Terra Alta, a land of good vineyards and wines, we both met in Priorat, when I was linked to the DOQ PRIORAT as a field technician.
Since then, our friendship has led us to follow parallel paths in Terra Alta: Jordi with the wine and I with the vineyards. He learns from me when it comes to growing vineyards and I from him as a great person who knows how to transmit the spirit of “Terraltí” (from Terra Alta) wine.
It is necessary to continue linking the vineyard and the wine, and this is and will be the goal of Celler Jordi Miró.
