The winery:

Land of vineyards

Already in 1775, the traveler british Henry Swinburne claimed that, in the region of Reus, “the best wine to drink is what is harvested in the mountains of the carthusians”. Two hundred years later, these mountains are cultivated vineyards, where excellent wines, a raw material of a quality that is recognized both before, as today.

Hundreds of years ago who practiced the viticulture in some of the estates bodega Scaladei. Are the lands where it has remained the vineyard throughout the centuries, so that the grape that has been obtained has always been quality undisputed. The grapes coming out of our wines comes from vines that are about fifty years of media. Are nearly sixty acres -of garnacha and cariñena, mainly- spread over 42 different farms and that, very often, they are small worlds that have nothing to do with each other and cultivate and take care from the respective particularity. Parcels located between the 400 and the 800 meters above sea level, what makes us count on some of the vineyards of higher altitude of the Priorat. There are three types of soil you have (whiteboards, clays and calcareous soils) and, due to the rugged orography of the territory, we have in all possible orientations. All of this allows us to have a wide range of nuances in the wines, attentive to the smallest detail of the production, considering that it is the winery itself that controls and works the farms directly.
