Cal Grau Winery and Vineyards

D.O. Q. Priorato

El Priorat Qualified Designation of Origin extends to the foothills of the Serra de Montsant, in the province of Tarragona. The river Siurana flows downstream towards the Ebro, south of the region. The terrain, made up of slate soils and the different slopes of the Siurana river tributaries, has shaped a landscape that preserves the essence of the area’s vineyards.

This means that of the 44 ha of surface area where our estate is located, in the municipality of Molar, only 22 ha are vineyards. The region’s extreme climate and native grape varieties, as well as the terraces and high minerality of the soil are the four pillars that define the personality of our product.

The wines

La Petite Agnès’, aged for four months in barrels, comes from our most fruity Garnacha and Cariñena vineyards. ‘Clos Badaceli’, aged for 14 months in new French oak barrels, embodies the concentration of our best vineyards and its name refers to the mountain just in front of the Bodega. The Bodega’s smallest production wine is ‘Les Ones’, whose name refers to the shape of our vineyards with their curves and terraces (‘Ones’ in Catalan translates as waves); the wine is made in very special vintages, being a single-varietal wine of the native Samsó grape.

The estate is made up of 42 hectares of which only 22 hectares are vineyards; these are classified into plots according to altitude, soils, variety and orientation. The vines rest on terraces of slate soil and follow the contours of the land, enabling workable slopes which, in turn, promote sustainable winegrowing that is adapted to the environment. The winemaking is carried out in small tanks so that each wine can be linked to its sector of origin. The wines are aged in the underground cellar in 300-litre French oak barrels.
