The Priorat (in Spanish, Priorato) is a DO, the second to obtain it, after the Rioja DO. The Priorat is in the province of Taragona. With vineyards more suited to hills, the dry Mediterranean climate benefits the wines along with the minerals it gets from the poor, volcanic soil.
Its main white grape varieties are Macabeo, Pedro Ximenez and Garnacha which are all grown on the 1,725 hectares including over 82 wineries and 600 growers. The famous Red wines they produce are garnet-red in colour, aromatic, rich and fleshy. Priorat red wines are produced mainly from Carignan, but some also used are the Grenache, Garnacha Peluda, Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot and Syray.
Many wine specialists and sommeliers believe that wines from the D.O. Priorat have become the benchmark for the worldwide wine industry.
