Príncep del Priorat is a wood-aged red wine made by Celler Vallvé & Guevara with the Garnacha Tinta, Cariñena, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah varieties in the D.O. Q. Priorat (Catalonia).
 
Celler Vallvé & Guevara was set up with the aim of showcasing the expression of some unique terroirs. The winery is located in the town of Porrera (Tarragona) and their philosophy is to make wines to enjoy and share. 
 
Príncep del Priorat comes from some old vines located on imposing terraces on licorella slate soils. They are cultivated using traditional agriculture and all the work has to be carried out manually because the terrain is difficult to access. The harvest is carried out in 15 kg boxes and includes the first selection of the clusters.
 
The grapes used to make Príncep del Priorat undergo a second selection process In the winery and are then destemmed. Fermentation takes place in 10,000 kg stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature with a maceration of about 14 days. Pump-overs and cap-plunges are carried out and the wine remains on its fine lees for 30 days. Finally, the wine ages in French and American oak barrels for 8 months. 
 
Príncep del Priorat is a powerful and concentrated mineral wine. A red that is made in one of the most important denominations in Spain and perfectly defines the expression of this region’s wines.

Priorat is craftsmanship and tradition, old and robust vines that are grown and born deep inside the province of Tarragona. They are grown on slopes that are sleety with low fertility and difficult to grow in. In Priorat they produce great red wines of an excellent quality, a maroon colour, robust, dense and rich flavour, intense aromas and sometimes there are reflections present of minerals from the soils.
