The production and processing area of DO Terra Alta (DOTA) is in the southern part of Catalonia between the River Ebro and the border with Aragon. It takes in the 12 towns in the county of la Terra Alta.
Its landscape retains all the characteristic features of an inland terroir close to the Mediterranean: pre-coastal limestone ranges (Ports d’Horta, Pàndols and Cavalls), small rivers (the Algars and the Canaletes), mountains of conglomerate rock, holm oak and white pine forests, and most of all agricultural soils painted with typical Mediterranean crops: almond trees, vines and olives.
Three clearly separate landscape features of agricultural interest can be added to this structure: la Plana, l’Altiplà and les Valls.
Spain smells like wine. The reason for this is that vineyards are grown in all of its 17 Autonomous Communities. Its location, climatic differences and the variety of soils make the Iberian Peninsula a privileged place for the production of very different wines.
In recent years, new Appellations of Origin, areas of production, wineries, and even projects have been emerging to recover grape varieties and areas that were for many years forgotten and had almost disappeared. For all this and much more, we join this movement of offering different, alternative, full of character wines in an attempt to publicise other less prestigious wine areas but of equal or greater quality than those already known.
