Celler Unio Besa Flor Montsant

  • Wine has been produced in the Montsant area for thousands of years. It is a very isolated area, depending exclusively on agricultural production methods that respect the environment and which serve as a good example of environmental preservation.
  • Vineyards spread out across the mountainous slopes among olive groves, forests, and stone.

Varietal Composition: Grenache, Merlot, Tempranillo, Mazuela

Elaboration: The Designation of Origin DO Montsant is located in the centre of Catalonia, forming a ring around the famous and exclusive DOQ Priorat. DO Montsant is known as the “diamond in the rough”, because although it is a DO which was created only a few years ago, it already has a prestigious reputation throughout the world. In fact, its prestige is growing so fast that DO Montsant is today one of the world’s top-rated regions.

Tasting Notes: A young wine, strawberry color, with lively hints of pomegranate. Aroma of red fruit. In the mouth it is pleasantly buttery, with hints of fruit and light balsamic notes. Long and persistent mid-palate, leaving a wonderful feeling of fullness on the palate.




Today, the Qualified Designation of Origin Priorat is one of the world’s most prestigious wine-producing regions. Priorat is one of only two regions in Spain with the prestigious DOCa designation, the other being Rioja. The name Priorat comes from the word priory, a salute to the dedicated Carthusian monks who were cultivating grapes in the region as far back as the 12th century.
