La Cartuja was the name assigned during
medieval times, to a large geographical area governed by the Cartussian
monks. This geographical area had its own code of law (similar to the Vatican
estates). During medieval times Priorat as a whole was a "Cartuja". It wasn't a civil domain but a religious state. Needless to say that Priorat's winemaking heritage belongs to the Cartussian monks who tended these difficult isolated
vineyards for centuries. As a side note, if you are looking for the oldest vines in Spain and the best areas to make wine look for the areas where the monks established themselves during medieval times.
What makes La Cartuja Unique?
Estate-owned small production wine; a
singular location at the heart of Priorat; Organic viticulture; oak ageing is short, a Priorat wine that shows depth but drinkability while young; an extraordinary value!
