DOQ Priorat

Talking about the landscape of a place is always a difficult task, given the complexity of factors involved and the varying viewpoints therein.

However, the one thing the Priorat has is its uniqueness. No-one strolling through the terrain can help but be aware that they are in a unique landscape, one that has characteristics that make it very different from any other place, even if it has similar mountainous and agronomic features.

DO Montsant

The DO Montsant is a land where the landscape and the wine have gone hand in hand throughout the centuries and where even the old vines, cared for as authentic treasures, have great history. A story that, with renewed drive and enthusiasm, looks towards the future.

The relationship of this territory with the vineyard and wine comes from as far away as the Roman Empire, at which time wine was already made in the territory. Remains of a Roman settlement have been found in the town of Marçà, and among the pieces discovered there are wine amphorae that were most likely destined for the consumption of the great Tarraco.

DO Terra Alta​

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.

DO Cava

The origin of Cava is associated to the splendour of Catalan viticulture by mid 19th century. The studies of microbiology carried out by Louis Pasteur applied to wine, involved a control of the second fermentation in the bottle and the discovery of cork allowed to avoid the losing of bubbles produced in the wine. The Champenoise or traditional method was born this way.

In the 19th century some families from Sant Sadurní d’Anoia started to investigate that new technique of elaboration applied to vineyards on the area, as a result of their studies and attempts related to the prestigious Institut Agrícola Català de Sant Isidre. Cava was born consequently achieving its own peculiar identity different from any other sparkling wine of quality.

In 1872, the first bottles of Cava are made in the municipality of Sant Sadurní d’Anoia following the traditional method of second fermentation in the bottle. Its elaboration begins and the town becomes the nerve capital of Cava.
