"Oriol Artigas actually came to winegrowing serendipitously. He originally wanted to be a chemist (ala Jules Chauvet), but after working a harvest in Penedès, Oriol realized that a career in a laboratory wasn’t for him and enrolled in an enology program soon after. His over-arching philosophy is to “cultivate the vineyards in the most natural and least interventionist way possible, to allow the grapes to express in the most intense way the landscape from which they come.” - Jose Pastor (the importer)


"Sammay Blanc is produced from north facing, high elevation Macabeo and south-facing Xarel-lo harvested by hand a day apart on September 8th and 9th. The grapes were destemmed, macerated for 5 days and fermented with temperature control only during the most turbulent parts of fermentation. The wine is then raised for 6 months on the lees in tank and bottled without any fining, filtration or added SO2." -Heart's Wine & Spirits
