Wine

One Region: Two Designations of Origin.

The region of the Priorat has two wine designations of origin or wine appellations, the DOQ Priorat and the DO Montsant. (DOQ - Denominació d’Origen Qualificada; DO – Denominació d’Origen) The DOQ Priorat is the elder of the two and was established in 1954, grouping together the territory that used to belong to the Prior of the Carthusian monastery of Santa Maria d’Escaladei. The soil has a high proportion of shale, known locally as llicorella. Nowadays, the DOQ Priorat has a place amongst the great wine growing regions of the world. [read more]

Working the vineyards is a complicated, demanding and costly undertaking, and the vines produce very little compared to those of other wine regions. [read more]
