The premier leadership organization of chief executives in the world visits Priorat

In the fall of 1950, YPO founder Ray Hickok laid the groundwork to create a unique organization for chief executive peers. His invitation to other young presidents in New York City brought together 20 leaders as the first members of Young Presidents’ Organization.

Excellent vintage to start harvest in a week in Priorat.

As usual in the Priorat, at this time of year, there is a generalized opinion about the harvest. The expectations are coming to the point to have an awesome vintage, with tiny production but of great quality. It has been an atypical vintage with strong changes in the weather that have altered the Mediterranean climate normal tendency. Despite a nice raining spring, the sudden change of intense cold at bud-break to a stifling heat at pea size between May and June has caused the vineyard to stop the growth of the vegetation very early and the grapes have advanced the ripening process.

Vidart, a chance for listening

Our knowledge of the Perinet vineyards has led us to build a model that will allow Perinet wines be transmitted through feelings. The goal is to let each variety reach its most pure expression. This is more extreme in our single varietal wines, small editions of Syrah, Cabernet, Grenache and Carignan. Through the taste of these wines each vintage will tell us how the influence of the year was. Climate conditions modulate the style, if they are more shy (reduced) or extroverted (opened) by the harsh climate of a particular crop.

Perinet wines and terroir

Perinet Winery started  a new project of wine making three years ago linked to the present times. The focus is to understand the vineyards and wine with the integration in the territory and how varieties have adapted to our Mediterranean environment. The current experience in Perinet estate has reached to comprehend the different varieties needs on those “meso” climates, terraces and slopes at high altitude.
