Wine Review Report:

Last reviewed: 9 February, 2016
The DO area (Spanish highlands), named after its high altitude, is located in the northeast of Spain, in the southeast of the region of Catalonia in the province of Tarragona and borders the DO area of Tarragona to the west. Viticulture was already practised here in the early Middle Ages, as evidenced by documents with wine-legal concerns dating from 1296 and 1319. The Mediterranean-continental climate is characterised by long and hot summers with sufficient rainfall and abundant sunshine, as well as very cold winters for the higher areas, especially in the east. The vineyards are exposed to a north wind and the warm and humid south wind known as...

Wine-growing in Spain has an ancient tradition, as vines were already cultivated 3000 years before Christ.

For religious reasons the Muslims cleared large parts of the vineyards or only allowed the production of raisins. They brought with them the art of distillation, but this was not used for alcoholic drinks, but essential oils, as...
