If you enjoy wine then El-Figueral is in an ideal location to taste some of the finest wines in Spain as we are in the heart of the DOQ Priorat, DO Montsant, DO Terra Alta and DO Tarragona.
There are lots of excellent vinyards in the area, but we only include the ones on this site that we have personally visited, tasted the wines, and recommend.
A region with ancient wine tradition, with wines already famous from as far back as the XII th Century, well known for its powerful flavour and taste. Nowadays, in the Priorat there are two Denominations d’Origent, the DOQ Priorat, which is formed by the Historic Priorat territory, and the DO Montsant, a newer DO, however, producing surprisingly good wines. Interestingly Priorat wines is the only other region in Spain holding the same quality mark as the more well-known Rioja wines.
If you want to see how the wine is made including a presentation on the area and wine tasting, visit the wine co-operative “Vinicola del Priorat” in Gratallops.

The Terra Alta
One of the most picturesque parts of the area that produces strong white wines that is full-bodied. The full-bodied beautiful reds are primarily produced by mixing three varieties of grapes: Macola, Garnatxa Negra and Gartnaxa peluda. This is the area were Picasso started out on one of his most fruitful stages, cubism, in the village of Horta de Sant Joan
The local wine cellars of the Terra Alta wines are well worth a visit for their magnificent buildings in the Modernist (Art Nouveau) style – see Gandesa and El Pinell de Brai.
