This remarkable winery dates back to the 12th century and is surrounded by some of the most distinctive winemaking geography in Spain. Scala Dei (Latin for “Ladder of God”) produces wines of exceptional flavor and depth which are among the most critically acclaimed from Priorat, one of Spain’s smallest and most recognized DOs. The dramatic terroir of the region surrounding the winery is breathtakingly steep and covered in black slate. The extremely low yields, in some cases only two pounds of fruit per vine produce highly concentrated grapes. This, together with the intense hand labor used in Priorat, results in wines of suberb quality and explains the costliness of region’s wines. More than half of Priorat’s wine production is exported. In 2000, Codorníu Raventós winery group assumed the management of Scala Dei’s vineyards and winery, employing modern techniques and state-of-the-art equipment. Scala Dei owns and farms 100% of the grapes for their wines and has been at the forefront of a movement away from the region’s traditional dark, intense and fairly alcoholic wines to a more pleasant, balanced and elegant style of Priorat wine.
