Nin y Ortiz

Amongst the highest altitude parcels of Priorat lie the parcels of Nin y Oritz, situated in Porrera in close proximity to Torroja. Ester Nin and Carles Oritz were independent vignerons until their paths crossed in 2008. Ester arrived from Penedès to Priorat in 2001, and after several projects she bought a small, steep parcel of 1ha in 2004. This became the site of her first cuvée Nit de Nin which produced only 900 bottles the first year. The vines are between 80-100 years old and the soils are licorella schist, which gives the wines their distinctive flint character.
