Cellers Scala Dei is a winery located in the Priorat region of Catalonia, Spain, known for producing high-quality wines that reflect the unique terroir of the area. The winery was founded in 1973 and takes its name from the nearby Carthusian monastery of Scala Dei, which dates back to the 12th century.
The winery owns over 20 hectares of vineyards, which are planted with a variety of grape varietals, including Garnacha, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah. The vineyards are situated at an altitude of 400-700 meters and are planted on soils that are rich in slate and other minerals.
Cellers Scala Dei produces a range of wines, including their flagship wine, the Scala Dei Prior. This wine is made from a blend of Garnacha, Carignan, and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and is aged in French oak barrels for 12-16 months. The wine is known for its complex aromas of red fruit, spices, and minerals, as well as its full-bodied and well-structured palate.
In addition to their Prior wine, Cellers Scala Dei also produces a range of other wines, including the Scala Dei Garnatxa, a red wine made from Garnacha grapes, and the Scala Dei Masdeu, a white wine made from Garnacha Blanca grapes. These wines are all made from carefully selected grapes and are aged in French oak barrels for varying lengths of time.
