The Pasanau family are perennial growers in Priorat, with vineyards located in the highest municipality of the region, literally skirting the sheer rock wall of the Sierra de Montsant which forms Priorat’s viticultural boundary.Gravelly scree eroded from the cliffs covers the underlying llicorella slate, together with the elevation creating a less Mediterranean microclimate relative to the region as a whole. At over 2,400 feet, Pasanau’s “Finca La Planeta” dominates the regional landscape and experiences Priorat’s widest daily temperature variation. This helps to retain freshness in the concentrated, late-harvested grapes, resulting in a uniquely tight-knit, albeit typically powerful Priorat style. The vineyards were replanted post Phylloxera by Grandfather Joan Pasanau. In the 80’s Uncle Ricard took over and continued until his death. Since 2020, his nephew, Jordi Pasanau has run the property.
