Els Escurçons is the highest licorella terroir in el Priorat, almost on the top of a hill. It is oriented towards the south-west. The views over the Ebro river valley, el Montsant mountain and the whole Priorat is breathtaking.
Els Escurçons terroir is taken care of by the people at Mas Martinet. They make one of their most prestigious wines there. They bring many of their guests to visit this place, so they can explain in situ the first part of this wine making process. Currently they have a table and four chairs to host their guests. In the extreme Priorat climate, it is often too hot or too cold, windy or rainy, to taste this wine in the best conditions possible -with no noise. So they have asked us to build a shelter where they can welcome everyone and explain and taste their wine.
The site is quite isolated, with a narrow dirt path as the only way to get there. The vineyard seasonal cycle produces many waste materials. The place is made of stone, air and vines. We will use all these materials to build the conditions needed. We won’t buy (almost) anything.
