Meet Herència Altés: A Winery Steeped in Tradition and Innovation
Nuria Altés and her husband Rafael de Haan embarked on this remarkable winemaking journey in 2010. It was a journey born out of their unconditional love for the land and a strong connection to their ancestors, who were deeply entrenched in the art of vine-growing. Nuria’s upbringing amidst vineyards was more than just a childhood; it was a profound immersion in the cycle of a vineyard’s life. She vividly recalls the early morning sounds of tractors signaling the start of harvest and the intoxicating aroma of grape juice that wafted through the village streets during those days.
Now, together with her husband, they are on a mission to transmit this deep-seated affection for the land and the way it is cultivated in all the wines they produce. Their vision is simple yet profound: to create wines that are a true reflection of the terroir, carrying with them the heritage and passion of Terra Alta.
