The Gifted Wine-growing Region of Priorat

The Joan Simo is a family winery located in the gifted wine-growing region of Priorat. During the 90s viticulture began in the region. The owner’s maternal family had a lot of experience in viticulture, but slowly the art of winemaking died. In 1999, he transformed the basement of the historic Porrera into a cellar to take advantage of the family vineyards. As a result, they were able to handcraft high-quality wines using the grapes from their vineyards. Many valuable magazines gave an excellent score to their wines, and now their wines are exported all over the world, including the USA, Canada, China, Denmark, Philippines, etc. The philosophy of the company is to make high-quality wines with passion and perseverance. Their handmade wines have a great taste and rightly reflect the qualities of their land and their hard work and determination.

The Boutique Winery That Produces a Limited Run of Their Wines

Gerrard Batllevell Simo is the current owner of the winery, and he runs the business along with his father, Uncle Jose, winemaker Josep Angel Mestres, and his friend Toni Pena. The Priorat region has a great steep and plain landscape. The soil contains slate which is rich in minerals and the varying microclimates in the region make it perfect for the cultivation of vines. The main grape varieties that grow in their estate include Grenache, Carignan, Shyra, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The best grapes are handpicked and used to make their top-class red and white wines. Their annual production is around 25000 bottles with four red wines and more coming in the future.
