Marco family has been involved in the business of wine since at least the fifteenth century. The Marco family appears in the first census of Catalonia (Spain) residing in the village of Porrera (1497) and also in the modern census carried out by el Conde de Floridablanca in 1787.
In the late nineteenth century, the phylloxera destroyed practically all French and Spanish vineyards. Marco family decided to emigrate to Barcelona but they preserved their house and vineyards in Porrera.
Ramon Marco Abella who was born in 1898, an entrepreneur of strong character, decided to give life to what had been one of the best vineyards in the region. His son, Joaquin Marco Revilla, a poet who keeps his heart in Porrera, together with his wife Clotilde Moliner transmitted to their children the love and passion of Porrera and viticulture. It is that generation that makes the dream of their life.
This new phase culminates one century after Ramón Marco Abella recover the vines, when his grandson David, and his wife Olivia decided to go a step further by building a modern winery. They also replant more than 30 hectares and recuperate 5 hectares of old vines (planted between 1910 and 1934).
In 2005 they decide to leave their jobs to construct the winery and start to make wine, their passion, contributing to the worldwide prestige of Priorat wines
