Clos Lentiscus belongs to a family of winegrowers whose goal is to capture the essence of the terroir with their wines. The family estate from the 14th century, surrounded by Mediterranean forests, facing south, is located in the Garraf Natural Park. The entire winery is organized following the principles of biodynamics. There, thanks to the sheep and their horse Ringo, and with the valuable help of their bees, they manage to work the vines respecting them and produce natural wines that today are some of the most interesting in Catalonia. In addition, Manel's generous and cheerful personality and his desire to share his knowledge are noticeable through his production.
