Description

Primitiu de Bellmunt is made exclusively from grapes sourced from the Bartolomé family’s vineyards. Like most Priorat families, Josep Bartolomé made some wine himself both for family consumption and some for sales in bulk with the remainder of production being sold to other producers in the region. The survival of such a legacy of old vineyards is a tribute to the life’s work of Josep Bartolomé, through the difficult years of the sixties and seventies when so many vineyards in Priorat were abandoned. From 1997, Antonio Rodriguez, Josep’s son in law started to produce some wine to be bottled under the Primitiu de Bellmunt label. At a time when a number of producers were experimenting with imported French varieties they chose to call the wine Primitiu to underline that it was produce purely from Priorat’s traditional varieties. That first vintage of Primitiu de Bellmunt they made just 500 bottles, followed by 3000 in 1998. The cellar currently produces around 8500 bottles per annum, although there are sufficient old vineyards to exceed this number in the future. 60% Garnacha & 40% Cariñena. Aged 14 months in new French Allier and American oak, and 7 months in bottle.
