Join us Tuesday February 24th for a very special wine dinner! We will be joined by Xavi Buil, the owner of Buil & Giné winery.The winery is located in the heart of Priorat; Gratallops, Catalonia, Spain. Chef Ruiz has put together a fantastic menu of tapas to pair with each wine. A dinner you do not want to miss!
Buil and Giné is named for the patriarch of
the family, Xavi Buil’s grandfather, Joan Giné. It was he who made wine
and raised his son and grandson in the vineyards and winery. Much
later, in the Spring of 1998, Buil and Giné was born. Their first wine:
Giné Giné was produced with the goal that wine should be both
approachable in style and price. As a result, their wines show more
restraint and balance than their counterparts and are always a great
value. The winery is located in the heart of Priorat: Gratallops, on the
steep slate strewn slopes that the region in known for. Many of the
vines here are 45+ years old and are a stone’s throw from the well known
L’Ermita vineyards that share much of the same terroir. Buil & Giné
produces wines in four designations of origin: DOQ Priorat, DO
Montsant, DO Toro and DO Rueda. The most
important and representative production is placed in Priorat, where the
winery is located. However in all of the four designations, their
philosophy summarises the raison d’être of each of their wines.
Producing quality wines, which are representative of their origins.
