The Winery

Scala Dei is the oldest winery in Priorat. Its origins lie in the lands surrounding the Scala Dei Monastery, where Carthusian Monks made wine as far back as the year 1163.  Today, the same spirit of artisanal craftsmanship is maintained and adapted to new techniques.  The Scala Dei wines are a true expression of the terroir, made using very special vineyards in a prime location. They stand out for being the oldest in the area, situated at altitudes between 400 and 800 metres, with distinctive soil and a variety of orientations.

Elaboration - Vinification

In order to preserve the aromatic properties of the Grenache the grapes are cooled on entering the winery to 2 ºC.

In order to preserve the aromatic properties of the Grenache the grapes are cooled on entering the winery to 2 ºC, they are destemmed and after 3 hours of maceration with the skins the free run juice is extracted from the grapes in tanks to obtain this pale and at the same time pleasant colour. After that the must is fined and undergoes the same fermentation as if it were a white wine. Following fermentation it remains in tanks for 4 months until it is time for bottling.

Vineyard - Viticulture

Grapes from high zones of Scala Dei, grown on clay soils that retain acidity and consequently the grapes’ freshness at the time of harvest.
