Clos Pissarra is a project born out of friendship and a longing to return to one’s roots. Master Sommelier and Proprietor of Miura Vineyards, Emmanuel Kemiji and Chefs Gerald Hirigoyen, Sylvain Portay and Laurent Manrique were mesmerized by the romance of possibly owning a vineyard and producing a wine with their own signature. in 2005, the venture grew to include more friends, significant among the Roger Lethander and Bob Hackman, and several more vineyards in neighboring Priorat.
 
In 2010, a winery was finally completed and over time the production will reach a scant 2,500 cases, but the object here has never been commercial and is instead driven by quality and pride.

100% Old Vine Garnacha from the steep slopes of the Priorat. Usually a blend from here, all Grenache is a rare find. 0.6 tons an acre yield…75 cases made. Very rich, yet with balance and seductive flavors. Nutmeg and such spices, marasca cherries, black pepper. Ample fine tannins on the long, wonderful finish.
