Made from the late-harvested centenarian garnacha grapes, Josefina Piñol is our white sweet wine packaged in exquisitely designed bottles. To obtain a high sugar concentration, the grapes are handpicked just before reaching over maturity at the beginning of November and aged for five months in new French Oak barrels. The wine is the colour of bright amber with aromas of banana, dates, grapefruit, quince, dried apricots, candied orange and linden blossom. With an exceedingly complex taste reminiscent of raisins, marzipan and honey cakes, Josefina Piñol is an ideal partner for all kind of desserts, goose foei gras and blue cheeses.
CELLER PIÑOL is a family run cellar devoted to the winemaking of fine wines based in Batea (DO Terra Alta).
The love and passion of Pinol family for the land and the vineyards started in the 20s when l'Avi Arrufi decided to produce the firsts liters of wine from his own vineyards. Now, four generations later, Juanjo Galcera Pinol continues the tradition of his great-grandfather respecting the values transmitted from father to son but incorporating the latest technology in order to innovate and be unique in the vine growing.
Many of Pinol wines are a tribute to the work and effort of the past generations. Some of the most emblematic wines represent those people who sacrified their lives working hard to make what is now Celler Pinol, the most recognized winery in Terra Alta.
