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.
