23/10/2020 – Familia Ametller is the new wine project of the Ametller Civill family, born from the desire to give continuity to the long family tradition in the care of owned vine plots in various points in the Penedès and Priorat.
Joan Ametller, the eldest son, started his wine project in the Priorat at the beginning of 2000 and, for a couple of years now, he has started bottling in the Penedès. In La Morera de Montsant, apart from having several plots planted mostly of Garnacha, the Joan Ametller winery was also built and during these years, pieces of landscape have been bottled to make “the Priorat” accessible to all.
In addition, this 2020 has been the second vintage of several wine references born in the Penedès, in plantations that also belong to the eighth generation. The union of two projects today permits us to talk about the Ametller Family, affirm their origins and the long lineage of farmers who for seven generations since 1830, have worked on their own land and made wines, for their own consumption, bulk sale and, finally, bottled sale in the two territories.
Joan Ametller: “We resume the long winemaking tradition of our ancestors and present ourselves as the Ametller Family because we believe in what we do and we want to claim it by signing it with our last name. We want to manifest our eternal love for the land, in the same way that we revindicate the figure of the farmer, so present in our DNA, and we honour the lineage that is, without a doubt, the most precious legacy that anyone can have.
