Catalunya region of Spain

Catalonia - its English name - is a very important area of Spanish wine production to the west of Barcelona in the north east of the country.

Catalonia has a number of well-known Spanish wine names under its jurisdiction. The best known is Cava, which is largely produced in Catalonia’s largest sub-region of Penedès. International varieties are more common place in Penedès than anywhere else in Spain, especially the likes of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, which is increasingly going into Cava wines. Conca de Barberá and Tarragona are two more regions well known for their contribution to Cava production from the native varieties.

Catalonia’s quality red wine region is centered in the region of Priorat, an area which has seen something of a renaissance in the last couple of decades and the area of vineyards has increased hugely as a result.

Priorat is special because of its unique soil, llicorella, which gives the wines a strong flinty character. Cariñena (Carignan) is the grape of choice to craft these (sometimes expensive) red wines, although there is some Garnacha on older vines here too.

Surrounding the region of Priorat is Montsant, a region that’s increasingly making fine red wines from a number of different grape varieties.
