El Masroig, Tarragona
Celler el Masroig, founded in 1917, is one of the most important wineries in the Priorat county. It encompasses approximately 500 hectares of vineyards, all under the Montsant Denomination of Origin, and is one of the largest wineries within de DO.
Harvest is 2.5 million kg, spread between grape varieties of Carignan and Red Grenache, our native grape varieties, and others foreign like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Tempranillo.
The ground is predominantly of red clay, an important factor that influences the quality of the vintage. The light of the sun reflected by the red earth around the grapes contributes importantly in the ripening of the fruit. The dryness of summer, the poor fertility of the terrain, the mountainous landscape and de Mediterranean climate are all key influences.

Taking a glass of wine to the lips is much more than just tasting a product. You explore the character of a landscape and culture which is reflected in each of the notes that give the wine body.
