In this southernmost Catalan wine region are many more of the famous “wine cathedral” cellars, where architects like César Martinell used innovative blueprint designs to celebrate the vitality of the vineyards here. High solar radiation, poor soil, a cold north-westerly “cerç” and south-westerly “garbí” winds provide excellent ripening for the grapes here. The region mostly specializes in the harvesting of Garnacha Blanca grapes for wonderful white wines. But naturally sweet red wines, “mistela” fortified wines and dry “rancios” wines from grapes over-ripened by autumn’s “cerç” are also unique specialties of the region.
