The wine-making origins of the Padró family date back to the year 1886 and to the village of Bràfim (Tarragona), which was, at the time a busy agricultural hub with around 400 inhabitants.

This is a very interesting concept more similar to an Rojo Americano, they say “Artemisia is the main herb which was originally used to make vermouth, however, there is another herb which is also often used: Gentian, which contains what is probably the bitterest substance to be found in the world: Amarogentin. We wanted to experiment a little with this herb, discover the pleasures of the bitter taste, by making a bold and seductive vermouth.”
