The DOQ Priorat covers a small region of fewer than 20,000 hectares, of which only 1,600 hectares are planted with vines. The landscape is abrupt and challenging and, as a result, working the vineyards is a complicated, demanding and costly undertaking. The vines produce very little compared to those of other wine regions. In exchange, they produce exceptional grapes which, in the expert hands of passionate viniculturalists, are transformed into worldwide acclaimed wines. Priorat wines are known for their marked character and extraordinary complexity.
