Overview

DO: Priorat

A small pocket of black hills of volcanic origin where red wines of superb quality have been made for over eight centuries. Priorat is located in Tarragona (North-East of Spain). The vineyards are scattered among eleven valley towns, and are terraced or planted on steep slopes. The bedrock, called llicorella, consists of reddish and black slate. The climate is more extreme than most continental areas. There are cold northern winds, and the warm Mistral blows in from the east. Summers are long, dry and hot, although the temperature may fall to zero in winter. Average annual temperature: 15°C. Average rainfall: 400-600 mm.

GR-174 is the lovely path that crosses Priorat. Hiking all along this track is probably the best way to feel its beauty. If you could concentrate in a bottle the ripe fruits aromas and the minerality of its terroir the result would be a wine like this.

Winery Profile

The farmhouse locally known as La Casa Gran can be found on the outskirts of the town of Bellmunt del Priorat, on the banks of the river Siurana. It is a building with a three hundred years history.

It was previously inhabited by the Carthusian monks from the nearby monastery of Scala Dei. In the XII century, this monastic order introduced vine-growing into this region, which has become one of the most renowned regions for winemaking in the world today.

In the lands surrounding La Casa Gran, lands that previously bore witness to the monks’ solemn vows of silence, Cruor and Gran Cruor, two modern and elegant red wines were born, wines that nowadays vie for a prestigious position amongst the Q.D.O. Priorat elite.
