About Casa Gran del Siurana:

The Casa Gran estate covers 10 hectares of deep flat land, mainly composed of sedimentary fluvial soils from the river Siurana. The vineyard houses the Casa Gran farmhouse, which lends its name to our bodega: a building with a history of three hundred years that was the former headquarters of the Carthusian monks of Scala Dei in ancient times. There’s a project to build a cellar and wine tasting facilities in this estate

Some years ago Castillo Perelada made a bid for the success of quality winemaking in the Empordà. This same passion for high expression wines has guided us to Priorat, one of the most highly regarded Designations of Origin in Spain and the world, and one of the few that are recognised as being a Qualified Designation of Origin.

Our venture with La Casa Gran del Siurana began with the main aim of creating modern, quality wines, through a winemaking process that would control all aspects from the moment the vine is planted onwards.
