DOQ Priorat, is one of only two regions (along with DOCa Rioja) that sit at a quality level above the rest of Spanish wines, affording them higher prices and a much more stringent quality control. As with much of Catalunya its mainstay grape is Garnacha (both White & Black) with 3 and 4 other international varietals allowed respectively. But it is Priorat’s heat and soil that truly distinguishes it from its neighbours. Old bush vines, in poor steep rocky and black slate soil (Licorella) offer small yields of powerful concentrated fruit as the vines struggle to find water. There is an aging system but it’s barely followed, with most wines spending 12-18 month in French oak and a year or two in bottle.

Clos 93, so called because it was the 93rd winery (or Clos) to register with the Consejo Regulador de Priorat, was created only 10 years ago by two brothers and their uncle; Rubén Sabaté (winemaker), Josep Sabaté and Pepo García, in whose house and garage they make the wines. The grapes themselves come from vines in the town of El Lloar, where they are just one of two wineries. With some 108 wineries now registered in Priorat, whilst Clos 93 may not be the newest winery, but it is officially recognised as Priorat’s smallest winery, producing just 12,500 bottles.
