Herència Altés | Winery in the Terra Alta region of Spain.

Owner | Núria Altés. She is a native of Batea (therefore a Catalan), in Terra Alta. Núria’s family have been grape growers for generations. She worked in local wineries before forming a partnership with her English husband, Rafael De Haan, to start Herència Altés. From 2010 Núria began buying her father’s grapes to make wine that carried her family’s name. The Herència Altés brand was born and by 2013 the project  had become successful enough to invest in its first vineyard, La Serra, and a small winery in Batea. She worked experienced French winemaker, Claude Gros.

Vineyards | In 2014 and 2015 the Grau and Chalamera vineyards were acquired. This brought the total holding to 60 hectares.

Organic certification | Farmed according to organic practices.

Winery | In 2016 work began on a new winery, located in the Grau vineyard. It is surrounded by old vines and overlooks the dramatic Els Ports massif.
