About the producer

The producer is a family-run farm of moscatel vines that originate from the Roman muscat introduced in the area during the Roman domination, around 2000 years ago. The grapes are first scalded to make the skin more porous in order to speed up the drying process and improve the retention of fruit moisture. The scalding process consists of submerging the grape bunches in a metal wire basket in boiling water mixed with a special natural ingredient based on almonds, called llegiu, for 15 seconds. The bunches are then laid out over cane beds and left in the sun.
