Alma de Llicorella

Sara Pérez

Sara has lived in the Priorat region since she was nine years old. She combined early studies in plant biology with work in vineyards and learning about the commercialization of wines. Upon completion of her studies in biology, she earned degrees in Viticulture from University Rovira I Virgili de Tarragona and in Philosophy from University of Barcelona. In 1996, Sara, with her brother Adrià, confronted their first vintage in Mas Martinet.
