Powered by passion for wine
Based in the traditional village of La Vilella Alta, BODEGAS MAS ALTA is the culmination of five Belgian partners' common desire to produce a great wine. This dream is now taking shape thanks to the advice of Michel Tardieu and Philippe Cambie, and as the result of the work done by a passionate team every day.
Tuned in to the grape
After slow maturation under the blazing sun, harvest time arrives. One word is on everyone's lips: RESPECT. Respect for the work of Nature, the work of generations of men and women who have toiled down the years to obtain this fruit.
Quality is always uppermost in our minds at every stage of the grape's processing. In fact, the equipment at Bodegas Mas Alta is designed to preserve the grape's intrinsic qualities as much as possible. Storage in cold rooms, a double sorting table, the concrete tanks are filled by grafity, temperature control, etc., – technology is used with respect for the fruit.
Vinification is gentle, with no extremes, the aim being to reveal the typical PRIORAT characteristics. Then we come to the aging stage, which varies between 14 and 18 months. During this time the wine will be honed and refined, affirming its identity, in small French oak barrels.
