Red Abadia de Poblet pursues three things: freshness, fruit and personality of the area. It represents for us a clear example of what a wine from the Conca de Barberà is. There is the expression of the varietals that locate the wine with its place of origin. The Trepat grape, native and unique varietal of D.O. Conca de Barberà, comes from centuries-old vineyards and combines perfectly with Garrut, Grenache and Ull de Llebre, which give it structure and sweetness.
Abadia de Poblet is the only winery in Catalonia to be located within a historic monument designated a World Heritage site. It brings together the winemaking tradition of the Cistercian monks from Burgundy with the knowledge of the Conca de Barberà, an area that has maintained the cultivation of native varieties. The philosophy behind the Monastery’s wines, which revive the use of local varieties (Trepat, Garrut and Grenache), is that they transmit the characteristics of the grapes that they are made from and the terroir in which they have been grown.

This wine pursues three things: freshness, fruit and zone personality. It represents for us a clear example of what a Conca de Barberà wine is. It is the expression of the varietals that locate the wine with its place of origin. The breeding, very respectful, is carried out in foudres of four thousand liters and in cement tanks for a year. We find a wine markedly from La Conca, with the typical touches of white pepper coming from the Trepat, accompanied by the Garrut that dresses the backbone of the wine, Garnatxa the greedy part, wrapping and rounded with Tempranillo.
The Trepat grape used for the Abadia de Poblet Tinto, comes from vines planted during the first half of the twentieth century.
The Trepat grape used for the Abadia de Poblet Tinto, comes from vines planted during the first half of the twentieth century, in areas that historically had been vineyards, but in which the cultivation of cereals was alternated between the rows of vines and with almonds planted at edge of the vineyards, bringing together the three Mediterranean crops typical of the Conca de Barberà. Old vineyards with south and southeast orientation in poor lands and at heights that go in the case of Trepat from 550 to 600 meters. Low yields, help find a Trepat with good concentration and with the expression of the land where it comes from. The Garrut of vines about 20 years old is located near the Monestir de Poblet in richer soils mixed slate and sands. The vineyards of Ull de Llebre and Garnacha are lined by the Prades mountains around 700 meters high and on floors marked by a mixture of slate and clay, the vines of both varietals oriented to the northeast.
