MODERNISM
ART

The cellar from l'Espluga de Francolí was named Catedral del Vi (Wine Cathedral) by the catalan writer Àngel Guimerà. This denomination was soon used for other cellars built at the beginning of the 20th century by architects such Cèsar Martinell, follower of Antoni Gaudí, and Domenech i Montaner and his son Pere Domènech Roura.

Esplugen

The rocky terrain that characterises the Priorat region, together with the dry climate, generates a wine of great intensity and a rich structure in taste and aromas.
