Celler De L’ Encastell

The “Castle” that reigns this so-called upper neighbourhood and cellar in Porrera  is actually the remains of an ancient defensive castle that crumbled during the Spanish War of Succession (circa the 18th century). The humble beginnings of the Raimon Castellvi’s family were just growing  and selling their Carignan and Grenache grapes to the local cooperative until Raimon himself took the leap to winemaking by the closing of  the 20th century.

The Encastell vineyards span over 8 hectares where 75 to 100 year-old vines are grown mixed with much younger crops. The total production of these lands turns reach 25,000 bottles per year.
