Characteristics of Cabrida
Cabrida is an exceptional red wine made in Montsant by the Celler de Capçanes winery. Celler de Capçanes is cooperative for the Capçanes population in Priorat, the cooperative was founded in 1933.
In those days, the winery focused on selling wine in bulk at competitive prices until in 1991, the first vintage of wine aged in barrels was sold. The arrival in 1990 of Angel Teixidó, the current winemaker, led to a radical shift in winemaking in the Celler de Capçanes. There was a greater focus on quality.
Cabrida is a single varietal Garnacha. The grapes come from old vines between 80 and 95 years old with a poor performance.
The vines are planted on terraces at an altitude of 500m, on a clay and granite soil. The harvest is done manually. Fermentation occurs at a controlled temperature between 24 and 28 ° C. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is macerated for 28 days. Malolactic fermentation begins in tanks before finishing in barrels.
Cabrida spends 12 months aging in medium and lightly toasted new French oak barrels. Once out of the barrel, the wine undergoes a second aging, this time in tanks for three months before being bottled.
A great red wine from Montsant with a very limited production. A full-bodied wine, balanced, and with a wonderful acidity.

The DO Montsant is situated in the province of Tarragona, surrounding the DOQ Priorat.
