The Ferrer Bobet winery is centrally located in the Priorat between Falset and Porrera. In 2002, the winemakers launched this extremely ambitious Priorat project. Both protagonists Sergi Ferrer-Salat and Raül Bobet are no strangers to Catalonia. Ferrer-Salat made a career in the industrial sector. He always dreamed of his own winery. Bobet was chief oenologist with none other than Miguel Torres for many years.
Between 2004 and 2006 they founded their winery in a beautiful location. Thanks to the natural stone and glass, the building is an architectural eye-catcher. The winery follows the latest trends in wine technology, with an underground aging cellar and high-tech installations. The great strength of the winery, however, are the very steep and elevated plots. These are in the middle of the coolest and windiest zone of the Priorat. All these factors make this winery one of the most interesting wine projects in the entire wine-growing region (Guía Gourmets). Syrah, grenache, carineña, cabernet sauvignon and viognier grow on the 22 ha. In addition, the winemakers entered into contracts with ancient vineyards, which supply their valuable grapes. Three wines are vinified here: the beginner wine Ferrer Bobet, the Vinyes Velles of old vines and the renowned Selecció Especial of 100% cariñena. Neil Martin, Robert Parker's intended successor, says of the wine: “Ferrer / Bobet is the future showplace of Priorat. No expense has been spared in the construction of a magnificent winery and in the planting of the vineyards ”. This description summarizes the crux of the matter!
