The oldest cellar in the Priorat can be found in the Procurador de la Cartoixa building, in the Carthusian monks of Scala Dei’s monastery, which dates from the late 17th century.
Everything is not what it seems at Cellers de Scala Dei; it is like travelling back in time, where special attention was paid to work in a slow and proper way.
From the very beginning, it has been our goal to bottle the truth, understanding it as our ancestors’ legacy, taking into account the history of the place, the respect for the heritage, the landscape and the place where the grapes come from.
In 1973, the families who obtained the Carthusian monks’ inheritance decided to join their forces and refurbish the old Unió d’Scala Dei, which is now under the name of Cellers de Scala Dei. Indeed, in 1974 they succeeded in bottling the first wine within the DO Priorat, the so called Cartoixa de Scala Dei, a wine that still maintains its origins today.
In Cellers de Scala Dei we are heirs of the know-how of the monks, which we currently combine with the wine-making process until they express the land from which the grapes come.
We have created a bridge between ancestral traditions and new techniques that allow us to preserve them. Two Priorats that converge, and from which we are direct witnesses.
You can still find hidden treasures in the winery; centenary fermentation cups, medieval constructions such as our barrel room, whilst getting embraced by an atmosphere that will make you understand how Scala Dei wines are made and noticing the essence of a unique corner of the region on every sip.
