Josep Anguera Beyme, son of Pere Anguera, expanded the cellar built by his father and added to his holdings the 3-hectare plot El Tancat, as well as some bordering land for ease of access.He kept the old Grenache and Carignan vineyards and introduced the fashionable Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties.
In 1984, he began to bottle a proportion of his production, first as a young wine, Joan d’Anguera, and then, in the 1990s, he released Finca l’Argatà.
He also researched the adaptability of other foreign varieties to the region and, in 1993, the Generalitat de Catalunya awarded him the medal of Catalan Agriculture.
Brothers Josep (1975) and Joan Anguera Pons (1977)
When their father died in 2000, agronomist Josep and oenologist Joan took over the estate.
In the early days, they continued to make structured, alcoholic and oaky wines, following the trend at the time.
In 2008 they started a total transformation of the vineyards with the aim of making wines in balance with the terroir, following organic and biodynamic methods and focusing on Grenache and Carignan in most of their plots.
In 2012 they achieved organic and Demeter certification in all their vineyards.
