That is how it all started

My grandmother, Josefa “la Balcona” (It’s her nickname because her house had a balcony) was a brave and enterprising woman who in the harsh years of the Spanish civil war bought our farm,being a widow and with two children … She built the first Balcona winery, to offer wine to its workers.

My mother, Dolores “la Balcona”, married Antonio. My father was one of the founding partners of the first cooperative cellar in Bullas ..

So it continued … my four brothers “learned to prune the vines before they learned to walk” … and we all grew up in this way … until in1997 when Josep Lluis Pèrez Verdú, of Mas Martinet (Priorat) transmitted his philosophy, on his way of taking care of the vineyard and his vision for producing great wines.
