In the 12th century, the Carthusian monks settled in the Priorat, newly reconquered from the Moors.
This mountainous region offers a vibrant and impressive landscape: a grand and mystical theatre where red rock, deep creeks, lush vegetation,
dark slate and bright green vineyards set the stage.
The Priorat is famous for its complex and powerful wines, product of the region’s slate soil and ample sunlight.
Here, wines have to give their best if they want to survive.
The very essence, the fifth-essence, of the Cariñena and Grenache grapes is extracted by our magnificent copper four-plate Arnold Holstein distillation column.
This is only done with time, effort, craftsmanship, and utmost respect from the wine lees of the top DOQ Priorat and DO Montsant wines we work with.
Anything less will not do.
