Ikigall

A wine worth living

Wine of a carefree character made from rigor, with a base of xarel.lo of very good quality, complemented with Malvasía de Sitges and Moscatel de Alejandría, with a fragrant and evocative nose and a dry palate. Inspired by the Japanese concept “Ikigai” “the reason to live”, this is a wine that we humbly believe is worth living.
