In the year 2006 we have started in Spain to grow grapes and olives at our farm. With these grapes and olives we make our wine and olive oil.
And sell them to allover the world.

Terra Personas is D.O. Montsant
The areas in this
DO take the form of a ring, with the majority of the
territory falling within the comarca (local district) of El Priorat, but
some of the lands of the Ribera del Ebro corresponding to DO
Montsant, which is defined as a modern designation of origin with a long
tradition in the production of red wine.
The climate here is Mediterranean
with continental influences. Rainfall is very limited and there are
sharp oscillations in temperature, although the southern part is a little
warmer. On the periphery of the DO, there are compact lands with
calcareous soils, on stony fluvial terraces, but which have a low water
holding capacity. In some parts of Cornudella and Falset, we find the
slate-based soils known locally as “llicorelles”, which are poor in
The vines exhibit low performance, an aspect that
in this area and which makes them highly prized. The red wines, which
are most important in quantity, are mainly made from Grenache and
Carignan and typical local DO varieties such as Tempranillo, Syrah,
Merlot and Cabernet, which are used in small percentages in coupages. DO Montsant
is also known for its young red wines. White wines, which are increasingly
present in this DO, are obtained from the Macabeu and White Grenache grape
varieties. Chardonnay, Muscat, Parellada and Pansal all have a token presence
in DO Montsant where they are used in blends. This DO also produces rosés
and liquors, with the latter forming part of the deeply rooted tradition
of this winemaking area.
