Wine maker notes
El Ramon (meaning the one known as Ramon in Catalan) refers to a 6 acre vineyard in the old mining town of Bellmunt in Priorat, owned by Ramon Marco who is our vineyard manager. This vineyard is planted to Grenache (Garnatxa), Carignan (Samso in Catalan) and Cabernet Sauvignon in even portions. It is a trellised and terraced vineyard, very steep, and the only thing you see on the ground is slate (locally known as licorella) as is typical in the region. Yields are typically less than a ton per acre.

Other text
The name Clos Pissarra is derived from the Catalan word for slate, as this is the soil that covers the regions of Montsant (sacred mountain) and Priorat (priory), that lie about 85 miles southwest of Barcelona. Priorat has quickly established itself as the premier wine region in Spain producing wines of great intensity and concentration but yet remaining elegant and balanced. Montsant has found a most comfortable niche, being described as a softer and more approachable version of Priorat, and a great value.

Miura (myu ra) n. 1. Derived from Don Eduardo Miura, the most famous breeder of Spanish fighting bulls; for the Spanish, Miura is a legendary name signifying nobility, boldness and power. Miura is our program that focuses on what I feel are the best regions in California for the growing of Pinot Noir. Within each of those regions I have selected the vineyards that best exemplify that area stylistically and qualitatively.
