The beautiful DO of Montsant sits in the Spanish wine region of Tarragona, and has a history that stretches back to the very earliest days of viticulture on the Iberian Peninsula.

Here, you find the dedicated and talented vintner, Anna Rovira, using traditional methods and modern know-how to produce wines which are the very essence of their land, and which bring a touch of sunshine and distinctly Spanish passion to tables around the world.

The winery of Celler de Capçanes is a fantastic example of a modern Montsant business, which has been producing its characterful and powerful wines since the 1930s.

Celler de Capçanes started as a cooperative, in which five families pooled their resources to create wines which would serve the village in which they lived, and today, it is still going strong, using the same spirit of a small producer to reach a global audience.

Celler de Capçanes rose to its current position as a leading producer in Tarragona in the 1990s, when people became more interested in purchasing domaine-produced estate wines, which captured all the power and passion of the land on which they were made.

The winery upped its game, with its sights trained on making waves beyond the village walls, and started employing new methods and being more selective about the grapes which ended up in the bottle.

When its high quality, clay-rich soils were put to the test, and the winemakers became more meticulous in their approach, the results were truly phenomenal.

The use of old bush vines, and the winery’s dedication to low-intervention, low-yield viticulture brings a true taste of Spain to the bottle, bursting with authentic, fascinating flavours that represent this small yet significant DO beautifully.
