Tarragona is located in the Catalonia region of northern Spain. It is divided into two sections: The largest expanse is along the Mediterranean just south of Penedes, and the other is further inland. The reason for this division is the the creation of the D.O. Montsant, which was separated from the rest of Tarragona in 2001.
 
The region began as far back as the Roman era, known for its sweet wines from late harvest Garnacha and Moscatel.  More recently the Cava grapes, Paralleda, Xarel-lo and Macabeo have been grown and sourced to Penedes Cava production. 
 
Garnacha is made into rosado and in blends with Cariñena. Ull de Llebre (Tempranillo), Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are also grown.

  • Celler de Capçanes Montsant Mas Donís Barrica 2004

    Snoothrank:

    A very good daily wine with no pretensions and much better than most wines in this price category. Actually more drinkable than the more complex 2005 vintage. Worth getting a case if you like Grenache. Not too new worldy like the 2005. Think of a nice house wine with Tapas in a dive in Madrid and this fits the bill. Read More

  • Capcanes Mas Donis Barrica 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This is a more interesting vintage than the 2004 which I liked as a daily wine and technically better but it seems a bit too young to drink now. Nothing disturbing but feels a bit raw. Didn't try decanting it. Not sure if it will age well but keeping a few bottles to see for next year. 2004 is much more drinkable now although a cut below. Good v... Read More

  • Portell Rosat Trepat Conca de Barbera Vinicola de Sarral 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Of strawberry color clear and clean and very shining; intense in nose where we will find memories to peach and it mills. In mouth we will find and balance with a touch of freshness smooth given by an integrated affluent acidity.Adapted to accompany any food and very specially recommended for appetizer, it connects very well with the exotic kitch...
