LA MEMÒRIA 

 DO  TERRA ALTA

THE MEMORY

On summer 1938, the lands of Vilalba dels Arcs, Fatarella, Camposines and Gandesa became one of the bloodiest scenarios of the Ebre's Battle. Each dry stone wall in Vall de la Novena, between the 481-Punta Targa and the 548-Gaeta vertices, was a trench for the front soldiers. Now a days, we still can find their imprints, including those of my grandfather Agustín Pérez.

Grenache or "Vernatxa", as it is called in the Ebre region, is the most entrenched variety in the territory and the people who inhabit it, becoming the eternal guardian of the landscapes and the memory of all those who, voluntarily or forced, they stepped on these lands 80 years ago. The 1938 harvest did not exist, the shortage of picked fruits was food for everyone. Today, as a silent witness of memory, we make a wine born in one of those old vineyards, a scene of pain and hope.

Of laMemòria 2018, 866 bottles of an exceptional and emotional wine have been produced, which evokes the sense of peace and memory of the Vins de la Memòria entire collection.
