Priorat, Spain

La Cartuja is a modern interpretation of DOCa Priorat’s terroir that nods to the great history of the region. During medieval times, “La Cartuja” was the name given to a large area of today’s Catalonia region governed by the Carthusian monks, who were responsible for much of the agrarian development of the region, including viticulture. Today, Priorat is one of the most prestigious appellations in Spain, revered for its powerfully mineral reds grown in poor soils of decomposed volcanic slate. A wine of pedigree, La Cartuja remains a small production cuvee made from estate-owned grapes located in the Les Solanes estate, which has been farmed since the heyday of the Carthusian monks in the Middle Ages.
