description

The Buil and Giné family returned to their winemaking roots in the rapidly evolving Priorat region in 1996 and since then have expanded into neighboring Montsant, as well as Rueda and Toro. The defining thread linking their wines seems to be pure fruit expression, richness without heaviness and excellent price-quality ratio. Young Xavier Buil, the proprietor, shows an uncanny sensibility and instinct for proportion for one so new to the craft. 

Buil and Giné is named for Xavi Buil’s grandfather, Joan Giné, who made wine and raised his son and grandson in these dramatic vineyards. The winery itself was established in 1998 in the heart of Priorat, Gratallops, among the steep slate strewn slopes that the region is famous for. Many of the vines here are 45+ years old and are a stone’s throw from the well known L’Ermita vineyards that share much of the same terroir.

A blend of Grenache and Carignan, 50% old vines, grown on steep slopes. The varieties are fermented separately. A long maceration at low temperatures is followed by malolactic fermentation. Once this process is completed, the wine is blended and bottled. The resulting wine shows intense notes of flowers, fruits and minerals from the soil. This wine is fresh, very fruity, round, and balanced, with a very long finish.
