Priorat D.O.C.a. is nowadays one of the most prestigious wine region all over the world. Unique. Sublime. The vines grow in poor, rocky soils, mainly silica slate, known by locals as “llicorella”, that gives Priorat its unique character. The llicorella confers the exclusive personality to the Priorat wines.
Priorat wines were originally made by “priors” or monks that were the owners of the lands until the first disentailment in Catalonia. After that, lands passed into private hands and vineyards started to be cultivated in Masias or Mases: ‘Bon Mas’ is expressed in Catalan, it means “Nice Chateau“.
The Vines of ‘Bon Mas’ are planted in terraces at an altitude of 625 meters ASL. Average production per vine is often less than 2 kg and each bottle of ‘Bon Mas’ offers a very descriptive taste or what a essential Priorat wine is and used to be: vibrant, with notes of crushed slate rocks, fruity and with subtle notes of oak.
