Elías Gil is the fourth generation of a long-standing family of wine producers. 1769 is the year in which we can find the first Gil with ties to the world of vines. Two and a half centuries growing grapes. But the wine production arrived slightly later on, about two generations later.
Ramon Gil, the great-grandfather of Elías, was the heir of the family home, the largest estate in the town, always in Horta de Sant Joan. As was tradition, he was the eldest male of all his siblings and he would inherit the estate.
His siblings gradually married. They left the family home to make their own lives, and Ramon remained single. Looking after his parents and the estate he was to inherit, as it gradually became larger. And when it seemed as though his life would be this way forever, he met Manuela.
