Viticultors Mas d’en Gil possesses a 125 hectare estate in the municipal district of Bellmunt del Priorat, within the historical El Priorat region. Situated 300 metres above sea level, with its terraces framed by Montsant and the Serra de Llaberia, it faces the direction from which a breeze, known locally as the garbinada, wafts in from the sea bringing with it moisture and coolness on the hottest summer days, thereby helping to ensure optimum ripeness of the grapes. The estate’s particular microclimate, with its wide temperature range, in conjunction with the properties of the llicorella (the singular slate-rich soil that characterises and marks off the Priorat D.O.), imparts a unique richness and personality to the colour, aroma and palate of its wines. The terraces of grapevines. 45 Ha., alternate with plantations of olive trees and almond trees leading on into a wood, an example of the purest essence of the Mediterranean.
