Scala Dei Cellars
Viticulture has taken place in various Scala Dei cellar estates for hundreds of years now. In these lands the vines have been unspoiled throughout centuries, since our grapes have always reached an acknowledged quality. The grapes used to make our wines come from vineyards that are, on average, 50 years old. They cover almost 70 hectares ─ of mainly Grenache ─ distributed into 41 different vineyards: they are like small worlds which have nothing to do with each other, which requires them to be dealt with according to their peculiarities. Some estates are between 400 and 800 metres above the sea level, which make them the highest vineyards in Priorat. There are 3 types of soil ─slates, clay and calcareous─ and, due to the rugged terrain in the area, they all have different orientations. These features provide us with a wide range of nuances in the wine making; we pay attention to the smallest details within the production, considering it is the very same cellar that directly controls and works the land.
