History & Philosophy
The Priorat DOCa is situated in the most southern province of Catalonia, Tarragona.
The region was elevated in 2009 to Qualified Designation of Origin (DOCa) status. The only other region with this Classification in Spain is Rioja.
‘Cims’ is Catalan for ‘summits’ which reflects how the vines and winery sit at the summit of the Porrera village. Cims de Porrera wines are still made in the old village co-operative where the facilities have been fully modernised to maximise the full potential of the region’s unique vineyards. Their focus is to produce only two premium wines which truly reflect the Priorat region.
Vineyard & Climate
Each vineyard is situated on the steep, rocky slopes above Porrera village at an altitude between 400 and 600 metres. This rugged and steep terrain and the age of the vineyards (between 40 and 100 years old) demands meticulous harvesting by hand. The vineyards are harvested and vinified separately, and the wines remain in their separate tanks until final blending.
The combination of unique black, slate soils, a rich variety of micro-climates and vines more than 100 years old, results in wines that are widely recognised for their exceptional quality.
