Gratavinum was established in 2003 when the owners of Parés Baltà – brothers Joan and Josep Cusiné and their winemaking wives MªElena Jiménez and Marta Casas – decided to invest in the wild Priorat landscape. The estate, which takes its name from the contraction of Gratallops (the name of the village where the winery is located) and Vinum (Latin for wine), is run by the Cusiné family and winemaker Jordi Fernandez. Today, Gratavinum possesses 17 organically-farmed hectares of terraced vineyards, which are rich in Llicorella, a slate and quartz soil. Working with old vines of indigenous grapes as well as newcomer varietals, they produce powerful; structures wines with the distinctive mineral character of Priorat.
