For over 20 years Toni Sánchez-Ortiz has worked full time within the demanding context of producing world-class wines as a winemaker and viticulturist in the renowned appellations of DO Montsant and DOQ Priorat, Spain. He approaches winemaking as a learned craft, part science and part art.
Toni was born on December, 1978 in a small valley in Spain’s Pyrenees. He studied enology at both the University of Tarragona (Spain) and the University Victor Segalen in Bordeaux (France). Toni possesses extensive technical and laboratory skills, further honed by his Master’s degree in Chemistry from the University of Barcelona.
He is known for creating outstanding fine wines with a unique personality as an expression of local varietals. Toni’s conviction is that great wine results from an intimate knowledge of the land and a complete experience in vineyard management. In his PhD thesis research work, Toni continues to deepen his knowledge on how Montsant wines are affected by global warming.
