Buil & Giné

  • Priorat, Spain

Buil and Giné is named for Xavi Buil’s grandfather, Joan Giné, who made wine and raised his son and grandson in these dramatic vineyards. The winery itself was established in 1998 in the heart of Priorat, Gratallops, among the steep slate strewn slopes that the region is famous 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.

From the beginning, their wines have been produced with the goal that their offerings should be classic yet approachable in style, but also approachable in terms of price; as a result, their wines show more restraint and balance than other wines that sell for comparable prices. Their efforts have not gone unnoticed: in their Annual Buying Guide, Wine & Spirits Magazine selected Buil & Giné as one of the Wineries of the Year in 2006, 2008 and 2009.
