El Trosset de l’Adolf is a warm estate on the edge of the village, located in Els Solans, at 450m altitude and facing south. It receives sunlight almost all day long.

After the phylloxera epidemic, El Trosset was lost, and Adolf’s godfather, around 1930, started planting it again: clearing with a hoe and digging holes to plant Carignan and Grenache vines. “Then my godfather went into exile to France, with his daughters. The godmother stayed with my father and brother. My father took care of the plot,” explains Adolf. He points to one end of the estate: “I have a photo of plowing with the mule when I was 20, there in the flat area. I’ve been dedicating my whole life to the land. My father, my godfather, and we always came to work the land. My brother was studying in Barcelona, but when he came on weekends, he had to go to the plot. It’s a wine from my father, my godfather, from all generations.”

Adolf explains that before, most of the plots in the village were planted like this, and they were left to ruin because they didn’t pay anything: “Before the creation of Cims, we took the harvest to the Vinícola de Gratallops, and they paid us 40 pesetas per kilo, to be collected in two or three years. My godfather was almost going to plant almond trees, but my father didn’t want to. Then Josep Lluís and Llach arrived and raised the price of grapes, and we were able to continue working the land.”
