Conca de Barberá

D.O. Conca de Barberà

Conca de Barberà is a denomination of Spanish origin located in the north of the province of Tarragona.

The wine history of the region dates back to the 1st century BC, but its tradition is closely linked to the monastery of Poblet. The vineyard is settled in a depression or depression (conca), soil eroded by the passage of the Francolí River. They are calcareous soils. It is an area that is part of the great depression of the Ebro and surrounded by mountains (mountains of Miramar, Gayá, Tallat and massif of Prades), which causes it to have a Mediterranean microclimate, but with continental influence that makes them occur marked thermal differences between day and night.

This climate is especially favorable for the cultivation of Pinot Noir grapes. In addition, our vineyards have slaty soil which gives a mineral touch to the grape.

Grapes: Pinot Noir.
