The wine

There were some who believed at the start that the success of Celler Vall Llach was due to the popularity of one of its founders: the Catalan singer Lluís Llach. However, vintage after vintage, the bottles leaving the Porrera winery have seen to it that such an inapt notion has been completely dispelled, and proved that this bodega's wines have their own character and line. As its name suggests, Embruix, the initial wine, is bewitching, and captivates from the first sip. Restrained powerfulness, minerality and typicity within reach of all pockets.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The ripe and juicy red 2019 Embruix was produced with the grapes from their youngest vines: 29% Garnacha, 28% Cariñena, 22% Merlot, 14% Syrah and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon this year. It achieved 15.5% alcohol and has less impact from the wood after aging in third- and fourth-use 300-liter oak barrels for 12 to 13 months. 43,300 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2021.

The winery

Celler Vall Llach

Celler Vall Llach

Celler Vall Llach was founded at the beginning of the 1990s by the singer Lluís Llach and the notary Enric Costa in the town of Porrera, opting for a controlled micro-production of their estates and “trossos” (century-old vineyards), and looking for quality over and above quantity.
