For more than 100 years, we have been thousands of farmers who have worked the land of Gandesa, a land of vineyards and centuries-old olive trees, of wines and oils with a strong personality and renown. We have been caring the fields for over a hundred years, harvesting by hand from our old vines and olive trees. And we bottle up a living product: delicious wines and oils that are made from excellent grapes and olives, but also from the sun that gilds our faces when we harvest, the moon that comes over us while we are in the field, the garbinada wind and the Cerç wind, the rain and the different soils and altitudes of the Terra Alta.
When we bottle up, oil and wine are mixed with our dreams and illusions, our work, and the work our parents and grandparents have done, with our history. And also we bottle up a precious legacy that the generations that have preceded us have transmitted to us: the spirit of cooperative and union, a permanent innovation in tradition, and the struggle to achieve always an excellent product. Yesterday and today.
Puresa Samsó is one of our premium wines. It is a monovarietal wine,100% Carignan, produced with grapes from old vines over 50 years old, harvested by hand. It is aged for twelve months in French oak barrels and has been aged in the bottle for at least two more years.

The wines and oils of our Cooperative are unique: because most of our wine comes from old vines, and the specially selected grapes are, for the most part, harvested by hand.
We work with a great variety of grapes, planted in different kinds of clays and heights and with different ages. This means that we have a great variety of products, each one excellent in its range, prepared for all tastes and economic possibilities.
The Designation of Origin (DO) Terra Alta was recognized as DO 1972 but this area has an almost thousand-year-old winemaking tradition. The Order of the Temple, through the Customs of Orta, of 1296, and the Customs of Miravet, of 1319, already recorded the cultivation of the vine and the production of wine in the area.
This region enjoys a Mediterranean climate, but with a strong continental influence, with temperature fluctuations between 6°C below zero and 38°C. Rain is scarce and white wine production predominates. The wines are powerful, robust, full-bodied and highly alcoholic.
