Each edition from Vins de Taller is the result of a long natural process which combines different factors: our own viticulture and viniculture practices, the varieties which they come from, the Mediterranean climate and the soil in which our vines grow. All these characteristics make up the terroir, our very own terroir in the Empordà region.
Vins de Taller fields are classified as Region III in the Winkler/Amerine scale. The natural wind of the Empordà region is the tramuntana, which can reach up to 120km/h. Temperatures vary greatly between day and night, especially in the forest vineyards, where the Malbec variety grows. The rainfall is irregular throughout the year, as is typical of the Mediterranean climate, and very scarce during the summer months. The soil of our vineyards is alkaline, with a loamy texture, made up of 36% sand, 17% clay and 47% silt.
At Vins de Taller we are convinced that high quality wines come from constant work, which always starts in the fields, planting the crops.
We did the last plantings in 2017 to form the old vines, in pots. Numerous studies on the influence of climate change on wine production have shown that this type of formation is less dehydrating and therefore more resistant to water stress.
However, we applied the 1 x 2 initial planting frame to 1.5 x 2.5 while maintaining strong root competition to control production.
