Being one of the oldest wineries in Priorat, the history of La Perla del Priorat dates back to the 15th century, when it used to be an important Monastery of Priorat known as “Mas del Frares”, occupy by the Carthusian Monks of Scala Dei and surrounded by an extended vineyard from where the monks blended their wines almost to the end of the 19th century when it was abandoned by the Monks. The winery was owned and runned by the family of Count Pirenne, who in 1998 bought “Mas dels Frares” along with an extra 100 hectares of land, replanting the vineyards that had already by then vanished to elaborate their four wines which were produced at La Perla del Priorat. Actually the new owners Miquel and Montse, under the name of Estriacus, are very proud to continue with this prestigious tradition.
