Founded by the same families that bought Cartoixa in 1840, the wines of Cellers de Scala Dei are the true history of wine from Priorat. This cellar produced the very first bottles of wine in the Priorat in 1878, which were sent to the Paris World's Fair. The wines are still aged in the old Carthusian cellars, dating back to the 17th century.
The grapes from which the wines of Scala Dei are made come from vineyards that are on average 50 years old. They cover almost 70 hectares, spread over 41 different vineyards. Some estates are between 400 and 800 meters above sea level, making them the highest vineyards in Priorat. There are 3 soil types, slate, clay and calcareous, and, due to the rugged terrain in the area, they all have different orientations. These properties give a wide range of nuances in winemaking. They pay attention to the smallest details within the production, as it is the same cellar that directly controls and works the land.
