Fruit for the ‘Ikigall’ is sourced from Penedès in Catalonia. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 160 metres above sea level, on a mixture of silty loam and sandy soils which provide an excellent balance of concentration and freshness. The vines are just over sixty years old and are managed organically.
Gallina de Piel is an exciting winemaking project from David Seijas, the former Head Sommelier at three-Michelin-starred restaurant El Bulli. David’s aim is to create versatile wines from Spain’s gastronomic northern regions: Catalonia, Aragon and Galicia. He works with local growers, selecting the best vineyards and indigenous grape varieties to create wines with an emphasis on elegance and freshness.
