Francesc Capafons and Monserrat Ossó married in the late 1960s, merging their family names and historic vineyards in the Spanish wine regions of D.O.Q. Priorat and D.O. Montsant. Located in northeast Spain, both regions benefit from the tempering influence of the Mediterranean Sea, distinctive slate soils, and a rich winemaking legacy that has left them with a high percentage of ancient, low-yielding vines. From these historic areas, the Capafons-Ossó family produces balanced, expressive wines that continue to garner critical acclaim.
The unique black slate soils of Priorat force the roots of vines to dig deeply for water, resulting in small yields of highly concentrated berries. From their Priorat vineyards the Capafons-Ossó family produces Mas de Masos, a combination of old-vine Garnacha and Cariñena with Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah; Sirsell, a smooth, fruity wine, is blended from Garnacha, Cariñena, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. The Priorat vineyard also produces Masos d’en Cubells, a proprietary blend of Garnacha, Cariñena, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah from vines 50 to 100 years old.
