For decades it was a sleepy forgotten region that didn’t figure in the world of modern, fine winemaking. It wasn’t until the 1980s that Priorat captured the hearts and imagination of a group of young producers and wine lovers, excited by the potential of its raw landscape and treasure trove of old vines.
The region is famed for its steeply sloped vineyards, unique slate soils, and baking summers. These difficult conditions place heavy demands on producers, attracting a particular set of winemakers, characterised by an adventurous spirit, genuine passion, and a deep connection to nature.
Despite the region’s harsh environment, or possibly because of it, the wines of Priorat are world-class. We are extremely fortunate to work with producers who have long been at the forefront of innovation in the region, including Clos i Terrasses, Terroir al Límit, and Familia Nin-Ortiz, whose wines capture the complexity and fierce beauty of the region.
