Celler de Capcanes

Spain

On the cusp of the noble wine regions of Priorat and Montsant, Celler de Capcanes offers an alluring dimension of Catalan wine making.

Begun as a co-operative in the 1930s when five families got together to vinify all the wine of this Priorat-area village, the Celler de Capcanes drew the attention of the wine world about two decades ago, in producing singular old vines Grenache, and wines from typically French varietals including Merlot, Pinot Noir and Syrah.

Celler de Capcanes brings to the enotri family wines of outstanding value. These begin with an exceptional terroir ranging from 150m to 600m above sea level, with highly concentrated deposits of granite, slate, and clay. Two dozen winegrowers work this bounty of nature, and their fruit of exceptional quality and fidelity to the soil is vinified by a very talented winemaking team consisting of Angel Teixido, Jürgen Wagner, and Anna Rovira.
