"Herencia Altès is a project a long time in the making. For generations my family has been grape growers, with vineyards dispersed around the village of Batea. Now, I have decided to give these grapes their own personality in the form of these hand-crafted wines. My home village is Batea. Built upon Roman and Moorish foundations it preserves a beautiful historical centre and its grand church is testament to its past glories. In terms of viticulture, it is the most important village in Terra Alta accounting for over 50% of its entire grape production. Most of the grapes are sold to cooperatives or large companies outside the region. Herencia Altes is my dream to put Terra Alta on the map and show the true quality of these wonderful old vines." – Nuria Altés
The wines in the Herencia Altes Range are produced from some of the oldest Garnacha vines in Terra Alta, including the wonderful single vineyard Benufet wine which is made from vines believed to have been planted in 1915, making them nearly 100 years old, making it one of the oldest Garnacha Blanca vineyards in the world.
