It was the Carthusian monks from France who were to “blame” for starting it all back in the 12th century when they founded the Scala Dei monastery and in turn, established the Priorat region that surrounded it. As the number of wineries have increased in the area, they’ve also started opening their doors to visitors and creating a spectacular enotourism offer for those making their holiday in Catalunya.
Their rich, full-bodied, elegant wines are matched only by the spectacular terraces that they’ve cut in to the steep mountains for their Grenache and Carignan vines.
These books to both the DOQ Priorat and DO Montsant regions provide a perfect guide to anyone who wanted to visit the 170 wine producers and together are over 800 pages in length. They hold lengthy profiles, full color photos, maps, and suggested itineraries, making them the most essential books for planning your own wine tour!
