Vicente Gandia

Vicente Gandia is a large and legendary Spanish wine producer and is the largest producer in Valencia. The company was founded in Valencia in 1885 by Vicente Gandia, a wine merchant, and by the early 20th century it was exporting wine throughout Europe. Today the company is owned and managed by the fourth generation of the Gandia family and there is a 490-acre family estate. Over the generations the Gandia family has been instrumental in improving the quality of Spanish wines and earning recognition for Spanish wines in international markets. Vicente Gandia produces wines from many appellations in Spain.


Spain, Cataluna, Priorato

Priorat in southern Catalonia is one of Spain’s newer regions for quality wines. With only about 2,500 vineyard acres, it is not one of Spain’s larger appellations, and its rocky mountains and hillsides make for challenging vineyard management. But grapes have been grown here in the rich, volcanic soil since at least the Middle Ages, when Carthusian monks planted vineyards. Bulk wines were the main focus here until the late 1970s, when pioneering Spanish winemakers Alvaro Palacios and René Barbier replanted vineyards and vastly improved winemaking in the region. Clos Mogador, Clos Erasmus and Finca Dofi were some of the now much-admired wineries started in the later decades of the 20th century. By the 1990s many innovative, quality-focused wineries were started in Priorat, making it one of the hottest winemaking regions in Spain. Priorat was made a DO in 1954 but upgraded to the prestigious Demoninación de Origen Calificada, or DOCa, in 2000. (In Catalan, the regional language, the appellation abbreviation is DOQ.) Full-flavored, full-bodied wines with relatively high alcohol content are characteristic of Priorat, with Garnacha (Grenache) and Carinena (Carignan) being the traditional grapes.
