Wines fortifieds designation of origin D.O. Montsant
The denomination of Origin Montsant was created in 2001, comprised by the cellars from the Falset zone that previously were included at the denomination of Origin Tarragona. From 28 wineries at the beginning to the current 59 we can explain the enormous growth of the appellation Montsant in just a few years. The production zone is mostly located at the Priorat region and in lower proportion at the “Ribera d’Ebre” zone. A remarkable fact is the cohabitation between the huge cooperatives and the familiar cellars, which generate a production of more than 10 millions of Kg each year, in a total surface of 2.000 hectares. The 70% of the volume is exported to other countries such as Germany and US.
