Celler de l’Era

Celler de l’Era is a small, family run winery that started in 2002 in the Montsant D.O. region of Catalonia. Its 12 hectares of rolling terrain are planted with indigenous varieties, such as Garnacha and Cariñena/Samsó, as well as with other international varieties. The most surprising characteristic of Celler de l’Era’s vineyards is that most of them are planted over Llicorella soil, a black broken slate soil most common from the neighbour region of Priorat. Llicorella (the Catalan name for this type of soil) is good at retaining the daily sun and warmth, which is then projected during night time to the vines and grapes, helping them mature. Moreover, Llicorella favours the concentration of nutrients and can distil mineral notes on the wines coming from vines planted in this soil type. Celler de l’Era enjoys a unique climate for wine production. Protected by the Montsant mountain range, and the relatively high elevation at which Celler de l’Era vines are grown (between 450 and 550 metres above sea level)  this climate is characterized by low rainfall (350-400 litres per year) a dry environment and a strong diurnal temperature range. These elements favour grape ripening and contribute to their natural acidity.

The Mas de les Moreres (Catalan name for Country House) is a house from the XVII century that has been restored by Celler de l’Era. The actual winery occupies part of this magnificent house, which for much of the XIX century, was used as a guest house.

The vineyards from Celler de l’Era are certified as organic by the Catalan Council of Organic Agricultural Production (CCPAE). Organic viticulture excludes any treatment with synthetic chemical products (such as herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers) and limits the use of any product that may leave a residue in the environment.
