Did Duran cares for a tiny plot of organically farmed vines eking out an existence on a precarious slope of inhospitable quartz and slate just outside the mountain village of Porrera. It’s incredible the plants survive the extreme conditions, and that the Dic can farm it: the slope has a 60% incline. Their centenarian cariñena vines are scarcely taller than your hand and produce less than a pound of concentrated, mineral fruit every fall.
Dic shaped terraces from virgin slate slopes by hand to plant his Olim vineyard on a cool, windy, north-facing slope up the valley opposite Vall Llach.
