"For years the farm was a place of passage, it was common for the stagecoaches to stop to refresh the horses and rest the travelers. This feeling of welcome has lasted for years until today. Until the nineteenth century the agricultural production of the the Estate was made up of cereals, olive trees, fruit trees and vineyards.
Between 1887 and 1896 the great-grandfather of the current winegrower, Antonio Giró i Lloret had to deal with a big problem: the phylloxera (plague that came from the vineyards of France) which devastated all the vineyards of southern Europe. This estate was no exception, Antonio did not let himself be overcome and replanted all the infected vines to continue making wines. Only the phylloxera (1887-1896) and the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) interrupted the production”.
