In the heart of Priorat, Spain, a region notable for its unique llicorella soils and grand terraces, resides Celler Cecilio, a pioneering winery that has shaped the local viticultural landscape. Founded in the late 1940s, Celler Cecilio bears the distinction of being the first officially registered winery in Priorat.
Celler Cecilio’s wines are a tribute to the stony, mineral-rich terrains of Priorat. The vineyards, predominantly planted with old vine Garnatxa and Carinyena, yield wines that are expressive, complex, and deeply rooted in their terroir. From the balanced acidity and red fruit notes of their Garnatxa wines to the powerful intensity of their Carinyena, each bottle is a testament to the region’s distinct character.
However, what truly sets Celler Cecilio apart is its unwavering commitment to natural wine-making. By employing traditional methods, minimal intervention, and organic farming practices, they craft wines that are pure, authentic, and true to their origin.
A glass from Celler Cecilio is not just a wine; it’s a narrative of Priorat, echoing the rugged beauty of its landscapes, the centuries-old winemaking heritage, and the enduring passion of its people. It’s a celebration of nature, tradition, and the art of winemaking.
