Lagar d’Amprius – History
Amprius Lagar, S. L. was born thanks to a group of passionate people about viticulture, oenology and vine potentialities development of Teruel lands and with a clear objective of accompanying a reference brand, Lagar d’Amprius, with unique, surprising and representative wines of the Matarraña Region (Matarranya), in Teruel Lower Aragón.
The choice of the Matarraña Region (Matarranya) is not the result of a spontaneous act or chance. It is a privileged Region because of its microclimate, at a suitable altitude above sea level and with the possibility of choosing the best vineyards orientation. It is protected from moist winds which come from the coast, through the Beceite mountain, giving to the environment a strong Mediterranean character but without excessive moisture which promotes the presence of fungi and other unwanted incidences.
In the past, the vineyard has always been the traditional cultivation in this area. Vine is perfectly adapted to the environment and the gradual disappearance of plantations is usually motivated more by demographic and economic factors.
It is worth mentioning the strategic situation of Calaceite and Arens de Lledó. They are located at only 180 km from Barcelona, 140 km from Zaragoza, 250 km from Valencia and 36 km from Motorland (motorcycle and car racing circuit), in Alcañiz.
Estates, known as Mas d’en Roch and Mas d’en Jerra and located in Calaceite and Arens de Lledó, are home to this young vineyards plantation.
