On this webshop you will find the finest Spanish wines from the D.O.Q Priorat wine region. Prioratwines.nl is the Priorat wine specialist.
An unknown small wine region about two hours drive from Barcelona that has a lot to offer. From the rugged and remote, rocky hills of Priorat come some of Spain's leading wineries. The DOQ Priorat stands for Denominació d'Origen Qualificada and is the only region besides Rioja with this high quality recognition.
Wine has been grown in the Priorat wine region in Catalonia since the Middle Ages. However, when a plague of lice destroyed the vines in this isolated area of eastern Spain in the 19th century, no wine was grown there for a long time. Until an energetic group of young winemakers began investing in this wine region south of Barcelona around 1980. And wine production in the Priorat wine region started to develop again.
