Spanish Wineries By Region

The Bodega Abadía de Poblet Monastery was born from the desire to recover the tradition of wine in this monastery, an ancient tradition, characteristic of the Cistercian Order, which started in Burgundy and linked with a single variety of grapes: Pinot Noir. This is a delicate and difficult variety, producing soft and elegant wines, unique in its finesse and different in many ways from any other known red wine. This variety is unusual in Spain. Poblet has a set of geological and climatic conditions that make it a extraordinary "Terroir" for viticulture. Deep and stony soils, with a predominance of shale, plus abnormally cool weather in the regional context, due to the height -over 500 meters and the orientation of its slopes, as well as the influence of the summer breeze. These conditions are particularly favorable for the Pinot Noir grape and ensure slow ripening and good condition of the grapes. Now owned by the Cordoniu Group who have made a profound restoration to the winery.
