Named after the movie Babel, a film that speaks of diversity, of difference, and also of harmony and reconciliation. 

The plot where this wine comes from is a very old plot, mostly Grenache Blanc and Gris, scattered amongst these vines were other grape varieties: Macabeu, Carignan, Clairette, Grenache noir, among others. It is also a fairly complex terroir, with a geological fault well in the middle the result is a complex terroir of limestone, marl and shale.

Apart from the natural circumstances, coincidentally, for our first harvest, in 2019, our friends from all corners of the world making up 7 different nationalities came to give them a hand. In the cellar, the wines were divided into 3 containers for aging: 3 barrels of 228L, a half-muid of 500, and a stainless steel tank which provides for the complexity in the wine. At the time of blending the wines, it felt as though everything is coming together again. 

For Laura and Paulo, Babel reflects all this complexity, in the vineyard and in the cellar.

A total of 3500 bottles and 120 Magnums were made in 2021.
