LA CONRERIA D'SCALA DEI
Escaladei, a treasure inside of DOQ Priorat
Escaladei equals the beginning of winemaking in Priorat, back in 1194 when the Carthusian Order arrived and settled in the lands given by the King Alfons I the Chaste.
Years of history have passed by what we know as DOQ Priorat. Today it’s a well know winemaking region all around the world, for its characteristic wines that come from a very special soil and incredible landscape, definitely heroic viticulture.
La Conreria d’Scala Dei, immerged in this marvelous historic village of Escaladei, was founded in 1997 by three friends, an enologist, a teacher and a priest that followed their dream of having their own winery. Our production covers six wines, two of them made from White Grenache and four very different reds blended with the varieties Grenache, Carignan, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Our vineyards cover 52 hectares all over Priorat from 200 meters to 700 meters above sea level. This variety of altitude, soils and microclimates give us a vast range of grape maturation and let us play with it in order to produce high quality wines. We work driven by a true respect for our environment producing organic wines that reflect the terroir and the soul of Priorat.
