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.
