Priorat is a land to discover at your own pace. It is a land of steep vineyards, harsh cliffs and imposing rock-faces, hidden valleys and cool ravines. It is a place of flatlands and mountains, crystal-clear streams, sunny and ordered cultivated areas. Come and meet the men and women of the Priorat region who have cultivated their love of this land and its countryside. Newcomers are captivated by the magic of this place, where angels climb ladders and wine runs through people’s veins.
The Priorat Wine Region is a small, dynamic wine region in Catalonia, known for its intense, full-bodied red wines. The classic Priorat wine is made from old-vine Grenache and Cariñena, with concentrated aromas of licorice and cherries. Wine making in the area dates back to the 12th century, with the establishment of the Priorato de Scala Dei Monastery by the Carthusian Order. In fact, the Carthusian order monks are responsible for planting the first vineyards in the area.
Priorat wines are typically aged for 12 months in oak barrels, and are unique for several reasons: they are made from very low-yielding vines, which implies higher quality (the lower the yield, the higher the quality of the wine); it is one of the only wine styles based on the Grenache variety; it´s one of two denomination of origins in Spain (besides la Rioja) to be qualified or guaranteed; and finally it has risen from being almost unheard-of internationally to being one of the world´s most expensive wines.
The red wines from Priorat have become very prestigious and sought after since the nineties. Very old vines, specially garnachas and cariñenas, and modern small wineries. But the most important thing in Priorat, and what makes the region unique, is the licorella soil, black slate in terraces located in a hillside terroir with really poor soil and low yield. The landscape here is spectacular, one of the most impressive in all Spain, small villages located in the mountains that are planted with vineyards in terraces.
Discover why some people think all of these wines are mystic.
