The Bodega Abadía de Poblet Monastery was born from the desire to recover the tradition of wine in his monastery, an ancient tradition, characteristic of the Cistercian Order, which started in Burgundy and linked with a single variety of grapes: Pinot Noir, a delicate and difficult variety, giving soft and elegant wines, unique in its finesse and away, for their style, from any other known red wine.
In the other hand, this variety is unusual in Spain. Poblet is 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 an 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 marina. These circumstances were particularly favorable for Pinot Noir, ensure slow ripening and good condition of the grapes. Following the Codorniu Group's entry was a profound restoration of the winery.
