René Barbier Ferrer is one of the visionaries who revolutionised Priorato wines in the ‘70s. We are referring to none other than the creator of Clos Mogador, also the father of Manyetes and the white wine, Nelin. This oenologist was born in Tarragona in 1950, son of French viticulturists. His training began in the wine schools of Beaune, in Burgundy, and Limoux, where he obtained his diploma in oenology, a qualification he broadened at the University of Bordeaux through work experience at several prestigious wineries. As a result, he has made white wines in Alsace (Riquewir, Doff au Moulin), worked at wineries such as Moueix, Pétrus, Château La Fleur Pétrus and several estates in Pomerol and St. Emilion; he finished his business training at the Sichels winery and studied the Champagne method at the ‘Café de París’ in Bordeaux. To finish, René Barbier admits that he likes wines which fit in with his philosophy, that are capable of expressing their place of origin, the terroir, the environment.

More than 60 years ago, the union and friendship of two families laid the foundations for what years later would be Crego e Monaguillo. At that time the wines of Monterrei, with a strong viticultural tradition, did not enjoy the prestige or recognition that they have today. Ernesto Atanes (father) and Manuel Rodríguez, simply friends, were somehow the ones who laid the foundations for what years later would become Crego e Monaguillo. They understood wine as a pleasure, something to share around a table with good friends, thus, together they cared for and pampered their vineyards, however, their wines were made separately. Years later his sons, Ernesto Atanes (Crego) and Ernesto Rodríguez (Monaguillo) founded Crego e Monaguillo.
