Clos i Terrasses

Clos i Terrasses

Daphne Glorian is a pioneer in the Priorat 'New Wave'. Clos I Terrasses was born in 1989, when Alvaro Palacios and Rene Barbier persuaded their friend Daphne to do something crazy: spend all her savings on some old Garnacha vines, planted on 17 terraces, just outside the village of Gratallops. Priorat’s reputation as a region for fine wines was yet to be established.

The first 10 vintages were made at Barbier’s Clos Mogador, until Daphne purchased an old cellar from Palacios. The wines have gone from strength to strength, regularly gaining top marks, and Priorat is firmly on the map as one of Spain's top wine regions.
