“El Grillo y La Luna was born from the dream of the Calvo & Pan Families who, after several generations working on the land, decided to make their dream a reality and produce their own wine from the grapes they had cultivated for so many years.
In a tiny winery in Somontano with an extraordinary terroir, and the collaboration of Flying Winemaker Michel Rolland, they produce complex wines with personality, wines that convey the spirit of the land from which they come.
The name Somontano means “foothill” and this area has a winemaking heritage dating back to the 2nd century B.C. with a perfect climate for cultivating grapevines, and a great variety of soils and heights with many diverse grape varietals.
The main goal is to handle the grape as little as possible, without touching the grapes with pumps or any other mechanical picking mechanism. The grapes are transported from the harvest crate to the storage area using vibrating sorting tables and conveyor belts.
Each wine is made from a yield of no more than 5,000 kilos of grapes, this allows them to divide the vineyards into different areas and maintain the typicity of the different terroirs.”
