Gine Gine Priorat
Made by the innovative Buil y Giné from the steeply terraced vineyards of Priorat. Gine Gine Priorat is full bodied with concentrated fruit balanced by fresh acidity and mineral notes on the very long finish.

Buil y Giné is a truly innovative, forward thinking producer with the drive and passion to bring Priorat to the wider market. Fronted by the dynamic Xavi Buil, whose family decided, in the winter of 1996, to return to the tradition of Priorat wine making that had been part of their family for so long. With the introduction of fresher, more economic wines than were previously available they have allowed many more people to sample these fantastic wines. His Giné Giné Priorat has all the spice, mineral and fruit that one expects from the region but it also has youth, vibrancy and clean bright fruit that make this such an appealing style.

The classic soils of Priorat – the slate, shale and liquorella – are poor soils for vigour but excellent for restricting yield and production of powerful, characterful wines. The Vines of Buil y Giné are grown on soil of granite with scarce organic material. The vines are cultivated in steep terraces which have to be seen to be believed.
