After six years of searching for the best wine regions of Italy, France and Spain, 1999 Dirk Hoet established himself in Priorat and bought Mas de les Pereres . Characterized by their scientific background, meaning research and his almost maniacal perfectionism , Dirk Hoet decided how and when to plant vineyards, how and when to treat them and the best time for the harvest . He is also passionate about determinin the vinification process to follow and how to drive the aging of young wines . All this creates wines of a Mediterranean style with emphasis on elegance and expression of the ” terroir .”
Dirk Hoet was deeply inspired by his friend and tutor Fiammetta Inga ( Umbria , Italy ) and Jean Natoli , its winemaker .
