Storytelling: Salmos originates in a beautiful hidden enclave. The vineyards grow on steep schist (llicorella) hillsides and experience severe shifts between daytime and nighttime temperatures. These whims of nature add to the charm of the wine. Salmos is a tribute to the Carthusian monks who planted the first vineyards in Priorat. The wine holds the mysterious legacy of ancient times and wise men.

Soil: Central Priorat is home to llicorella soils, which are unique to the region. They are made up of dark slate interbedded with quartzite layers. The soil is poor and volcanic in origin, giving the wines a strong mineral character.
