Julian is the person who for the last 60 years has cultivated the pre-phyloxeric vineyard that his grandfather planted on foot franco and at 750 m altitude at the end of the nineteenth century. It is, therefore, a unique vineyard, valuable both for the exceptional quality of the grapes obtained as a reservoir of plant material of garnacha and for serving as a living testimony and reference of a historical area of cultivation of this variety, the Sierra de Yerga.
