OUR HISTORY

OUR HISTORY

Each successive vintage is testament to their original vision for Terroir al Límit as well as Dominik’s continued quest to make the most elegant and expressive wines in the Priorat.

Dominik discovers his talent and passion for Mediterranean wine and culinary arts at a rather early stage: at the age of eighteen he visits an old Ligurian Trattoria; one year later he goes on a gourmet trip through Italy, alongside German top chef Karl Ederer, that takes him to various first-class traditional restaurants.

At 27, he starts studying Economics and Marketing in London, Munich and Madrid. In 1996, while still at university, he completes his first internship at the
Mas Martinet winery owned by the
Perez family – situated in the Priorat, one of the two oldest wine growing regions in Catalonia.

Enthused by his experiences and insights he takes on another internship at the Perez family after graduation in the year 2000 and gets employment as a labourer for a full year. In that time, Dominik encounters Eben Sadie, a highly regarded enologist from South Africa. They become friends and return to the Perez family in 2001 to help harvest the fruit.

I see myself as an artisan. I have always seen it as a challenge to interlink intellectuality, sensitivity and practical work. Torroja del Priorat has become the centre of my life and has stolen my heart. I feel that here it is possible to live in the traditional Mediterranean way, with a healthy coexistence between body and spirit. I believe I can offer this philosophy to the world with my wines.
