PRIORAT


 
The remote, rocky hills of the Priorat wine region are the birthplace of intense, minerally reds that many wine writers and collectors consider to be Spain's most elite wines. The distinctive slate-and-quartzite soil (locally called llicorella), an abundance of sunshine and an energetic group of young winemakers have earned the region a reputation as one of Spain's most innovative.

Mile after mile of hilly terrain, slate soil and leafy green vineyards fill this rural region in southern Catalunya, the relentless relieve of Priorat's landscape means that vineyards here are planted in steep terraces similar to those found in the Douro valley. On the steepest slopes, they are like enormous staircases, creating a pretty picture but back-breaking work for those who have to pick the grapes by hand; machine harvests are all but impossible here. It's also the ideal place to expose the most interesting characteristics of indigenous grapes like Garnacha, Cariñena as well as international varieties including Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Priorat's best wines are concentrated and full of character thanks to the very low yields produced by the region's harsh conditions. Expressive, fresh and less oaky than many traditional Spanish reds, Priorat wines have earned a devoted following in Spain and beyond.

About Mas Doix

CENTURY VINES IN RISING STAR PRIORAT

Mas Doix is a winery created by the Doix & Llagostera family in 1998, it is the reinitiation of a tradition that began in 1850. The phylloxera outbreak in 19th century did not mean the end of Mas Doix's vineyards. The winery replanted with Garnacha and Cariñena varieties in 1902, native to the Priorat region, thereby maintaining the growth of the vineyards while the production was sent to the co-operative in Poboleda until it was produced in our winery. 

The properties of the sloped vineyards, with licorella slate soil and vine-stocks between 70 and 105 years, guarantees us the availability of a reduced, but excellent, fruit. The passion and the constancy, during the last 90 years, of the Doix family have made possible the conservation of the vines that today are our main quality assurance.

At the present time, we have 15 ha. of our own vineyards, Doix estate (4 ha.) of Cariñena vines planted in 1902 (107 years old) and Garnachas (80 years old); Salanques estate (3 ha) also plated with Garnachas and Cariñenas; Les Crestes (3 ha.) planted with Garnacha; Mas de l'Osso (3 Ha.) planted with Garnacha, Syrah and Merlot; Els Ullastres (1 ha.) Old Cariñenas and La Venteta estate (1 ha.) planted with Cabernet Sauvignon.
